The older brother of a 48-year-old man arrested for assaulting three madrasah students last Friday morning has apologised to the Malay-Muslim community.
Koh Weng Onn was arrested in connection with the assault on the students. His brother, Muhammad Johan Koh, a Muslim convert said that his brother had been suffering from mental issues since young. He was admitted to the Institute of Mental Health in the 1990s but refused treatment. The older Koh added, "We were always afraid that something like this would happen one day.”
"After all that has happened, this is our way of apologising to the Malay-Muslim community."
