ALOR SETAR - A woman says she had a feeling of unease before finding out that her close friend was stabbed to death by her own husband due to jealousy at a house in Jalan Padang Nyu here, earlier this morning.

Rosima Dollah, 31, said she felt that something was wrong when she last communicated with her friend, Munira Abu Bakar, 31, on Friday.

"I felt strange when she didn't comment on my WhatsApp status like usual, besides announcing that she won't be active in running events anymore after this.

"She also said she was depressed at the moment," she said when met by reporters at the Forensics Department of the Sultanah Bahiyah Hospital (HSB) here, today.

However, Rosima said she was shocked when she received the news that her friend whom she had known for 18 years had died as a result of being murdered.

She said she often read about murder cases like this but never expected that it would happen to her best friend.

She said she and another friend of theirs called Along have been good friends with the victim since they studied together in Form One at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Raja Puan Muda Tengku Fauziah.

Rosima described that her best friend whom she called Angah was a gentle and kind person, who often advised her.
