Three Sikh friends from Kampar perished in an early morning accident when the four-wheel drive vehicle they were in crashed into the back of a lorry along the North-South Expressway near the Simpang Pulai toll near Ipoh.

It is understood that they driving back from Ipoh to Kampar when the incident occurred at 4.20am today (19 Aug 2018).

“They were at the Kampar gurdwara for an akhand path the night earlier. This is a tragic loss for the local Sanggat,” a Kampar resident told Asia Samachar. “One of the boys was supposed to get married in a few months time.”

They are Nishan Singh Dhillon Baldev Singh, Rajminder Singh Maan Niranjan Singh and Gurdial Singh Museh Swaran Singh, according to a note on social media sharing about their passing away.

When contacted by Asia Samachar, the undated photo was confirmed by one of their friends who had shared the photo on his personal Facebook page.

A Fire and Rescue Department spokesman said all three men died on the spot and that the impact of the crash sent all three men to be tossed out from the car, according to a report in The Star.

“The driver of the lorry, which was carrying newspapers, was also injured,” the unnamed official told the newspaper.

  4. My condolences to the families.
    [Below info may also apply to some extent for those who are not in Malaysia]

    This is forwarded for information of family members [and others as all will be affected sooner or later and thus should be aware and be prepared to avoid money/asset problems and hardships]. It is a common perception that most do not prepare for their after departure situations and also keep financial matters/information confidential even from their closest family members including parents/siblings/spouses/children/etc.

    Many deceased may have monies in EPF, Cooperatives, etc and benefits available from SOCSO for some and if the person was a member of any association he/she may also be eligible for some benefits besides having credit balances.

    Relatives of Government pensioners are also entitled to RM3K grant from the Pensions Department and this does not need any receipts of expenditure.

    Further I recently came to understand that next of kin [spouse-child-parents] of the departed who were EPF contributors, EPF gives RM2,500.00 which is credited to the account of the deceased member [subject to being below 55 years of age]. The total balance can then be withdrawn by the Registered Nominee or other entitled beneficiary. Eligible only if he was working at any time and has an EPF Account.

    Humbly suggest that family members go through the old documents to confirm as not many tell their parents, spouses, siblings or children of what they have or where they have and this also applies to other family members including spouses and children and siblings.

    Finally Selangor residents are also eligible for financial benefits subject to conditions. Please refer to SELANGOR WEBSITE >PEDULI SIHAT]

    [Above comments/views/advise are based on personal experiences and other relevant information]

    The STAR newspaper recently published on 5.7.17 a comprehensive report on hundreds of millions or RM with Insurance Companies being unclaimed monies owing to policy holders who may have gone to their final destination and the families/beneficiaries not being aware or there was no nomination.
    Similarly the Registrar of Unclaimed Monies is also holding billions of RM of unclaimed monies and the case may be same with Financial Institutions-banks-shares CDS accounts-Courts-Lawyers-Government Departments/Agencies-etc] Family members should scrutinize old documents and they may be able to find some of such monies which have become claimable and then they should take appropriate action as advised in the article.
    May there soul be with WAHE GURU JI
    Gur Fateh
