Steadfast and loyal, those are the two qualities possessed by Kpl Razkan Seran that he held onto until the end of his life.
A bodyguard to Tan Sri Dr. Jamaluddin Jarjis, his body was found with his arms wrapped around the Rompin MP by rescuers at the scene of the crash.
The two were among six people killed in the helicopter crash in Semenyih on Saturday.
“A member of the forensic team saluted me when I arrived to identify Razkan at the mortuary,” Razkan’s widow, Setinurafeni Andu (pic) told the press.
“I was surprised. He then told me that my husband did his job until the very end in guarding Jamaluddin.
“He was found with his arm around Jamaluddin,â€™â€™ said 30-year-old Setinurafeni in an interview on Monday at her family home in Kg Sg Damit in Tuaran about 40km from here.
“I feel good and proud that Razkan did his job until the very end. Even when his body bag was opened I could see his hand with his favourite bracelet.
“I knew it was him,â€™â€™ added the mother of two children – Ahmad Qais, 2, and Nur Aqilah Darwisyah, 6.
Initially, when Setinurafeni heard of a helicopter crash on Saturday, she said did not suspect anything, and was only thinking that there were too many crashes happening of late.
“My mother called me to inform me that a helicopter ferrying Jamaluddin had crashed. By then, my neighbours started to knock on my door, and by 7.30pm, I knew I had lost my husband,â€™â€™ she added.
Setinurafeni said she was able to cope with her loss after many people including Jamaluddinâ€™s widow, the Sultan of Pahang, and VVIPs were at the airport to comfort her.
Razkan, whose family lives in neighbouring Kg Saradan in Tenghilan, was buried at the Kg Sg Damit cemetery close to his wife’s home at about midnight on Sunday.
Razkan joined the police force in 2003 and served with the Federal Reserve Unit before joining the Unit Tindakan Khas (Special Action Force) in 2008, and was assigned as bodyguard to Jamaluddin in 2013.-MYNEWSHUB.CC
