According to Zahlawati, her husband had left their home in Ampang about 9.30 last night to deliver food in Pantai Dalam. She phone him several times until someone answered and told her that Zaili had met with an accident.

Zaili was killed on the spot after being thrown to the road shoulder of the Sultan Iskandar Expressway. The car driven by the suspect rear-ended his motorcycle.

Khor Yong Zhang, 21, was today charged with causing Zaili’s death while driving under the influence of alcohol.
