"We have lost a respectable and very talented Old Free," he said at his office yesterday.

He added that the school would observe a minute's silence during the assembly when the school reopens on Monday.

The youngest son and the eighth of nine children, Zaharie studied at the Jelutong English School (now known as SK Jelutong Barat) before moving to PFS from 1974 until 1978.

Puspakom to extend mobile inspection service

Posted: 25 Mar 2014 09:00 AM PDT

ALOR SETAR: Puspakom will be extending its Premier Mobile Inspection Service (PMI) to Kedah, Perak, Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan from April 1 to enable customers to obtain vehicle inspection services.

Its chief executive officer Mohammed Shukor Ismail said the service aimed to save time and facilitate vehicle owners to patronise its inspection services without the need to visit Puspakom centres.

"Many vehicle owners cannot spare the time to carry out inspection at our branches, so our PMI unit can serve them at their location. Customers only need to call the PMI toll-free line at 1800-222-210 for an appointment," he said in a media statement.

He said an inspection would only take 30 minutes and the charge was based on the type of inspection, costing between RM20 and RM50, while the service charge was RM100 for a car and RM50 for a motorcycle.

Mohammed Shukor said the extension of PMI was an initiative by Puspakom to raise its quality of service for the comfort of customers.

The PMI service is mandatory under the Road Transport Act 1987 for vehicles with expired road tax for more than a year and new or used imported vehicles. — Bernama
