KEMAMAN, Jan 28 — Police have obtained an order to remand an unemployed man for seven days beginning today over the death of his two year-old niece who was stabbed yesterday.
The remand order against the 26-year-old man was issued by Sessions Court judge Azman Mustapha.
The girl was said to be playing at her house in Felda Cerul 2 when she was stabbed on the chest at about 1pm, allegedly by a close relative.
The suspect, who tested positive for drug and had previous records for drug-related offences, was apprehended by neighbours about half and hour later and handed over to the police. — Bernama
