Mohammad Ammar Dhani died at about 6pm yesterday at his family’s home in Bakar Kapor, Penaga, here.

“The child’s remains were buried at the Bakar Kapor Mosque Cemetery, Penaga, at about 10am today,” Seberang Perai Utara District police chief Assistant Commissioner Noorzainy Mohd Noor said when contacted today.

On Jan 22, Mohamad Ammar Dhani’s wish of riding in a police MPV was granted when Noorzainy took him on a 10-minute VIP ride, along with his mother.

Mohammad Ammar Dhani, who had been diagnosed with cancer at the age of 2, had an obsession with police cars and had always wanted to be a policeman. – BERNAMA
