They already lost their father eight years ago.

Now three sisters have been orphaned after a ruthless attack killed their widowed mother, 46.

Four men set upon Cheong Chooi Mee when she was riding her motorcycle at around 12.30am in Kajang town, Selangor, on Monday.

She lost her balance when one of the assailants kicked her bike, throwing her to the ground.

Cheong suffered severe head injuries and was rushed to Kuala Lumpur Hospital, newspaper The Star reported.

Her daughters watched helplessly as their mother took her last breath.

Cheong died yesterday afternoon (Nov 4).

Bruises all over

Eldest daughter Lew Shueh Li, 18, said her mother had bruises all over her body - leading to suspicions that the attackers had also beaten her up.

She recalled: “Her eyes and shoulders were swollen. We were told none of her belongings were found on her.

Her two sisters will now be cared for by their 77-year-old grandmother.

“I hope the police will put the culprits behind bars as no one else should suffer the same fate as my mother,” she added.

Kajang deputy OCPD Supt Abdul Ghani Mohamad Ji said police arrested three suspects in Semenyih to help in investigations.

They are tracking down the fourth suspect.

The case has been classified as murder.
