SHAH ALAM, Dec 19 — The Section 21 Muslim Cemetery near here, was shrouded in sadness when eight funeral vans arrived with the remains of nine family members who perished in the horrific accident along the Elite Expressway near here last Friday.

The vans, driven by health workers donned in full PPE clothing and escorted by the police, were seen entering the main gate of the cemetery at 12.40pm today.

By 1.30pm the remains were buried in a common grave as requested by the family after the autopsies and Covid-19 screening were performed and funeral prayers conducted at  the Shah Alam Hospital Forensic Unit here.
