The incident was said to have happened at a Block 840A multi-storey car park at Yishun Street 81, between 10pm last Thursday and 12.15am the following morning in the renovation contractor’s van.
It was also reported by Shin Min Daily News that the child is the son of the suspect’s girlfriend.
While it was mentioned that the boy’s name, Izz Fayyaz Zayani Bin Ahmad, was identified in the court papers, the relationship between the accused and the victim was still unclear from the lack of documents.
It took two days after Izz’s death until his family was only able to collect and bury his remains, according to the family members’ Facebook posts.
Meanwhile, in accordance to the Section 325 of the Penal code, if convicted of voluntarily causing grievous hurt on the boy, Mohamed Aliff could face up to 10 years’ jail, a fine or caning.
He is expected to return to court on Friday, November 15, 2019.
