KUCHING: Abdul Rahim Hassan could accept the fact that his son, Taufik, 15, had died but he could never accept how he died.

Yesterday, High Court judge Yew Jen Kie sentenced Abang Ibrahim Abang Ahmad, 21, to 10 years' jail for causing the death of Taufik in Kampung Iboi Ulu, Samarahan, last year.
Taufik whose body was found buried behind Abang Ibrahim's house after he went missing for two days, is believed to have been bludgeoned to death.
Abang Ibrahim was initially charged with murder.
However, the charge was later changed to culpable homicide not amounting to murder after his counsel, Abdul Rahman Mohamad Azmi, requested for leniency due to his family background.
According to a social report by the Social Welfare Department, Abang Ibrahim came from a broken family as his father had left him at the age of 5.
His mother raised him together with three siblings.
Being the eldest, he had to help his mother to provide for the family.
However, his mother died last year, leaving him alone to care for his siblings -- two sisters and a brother, aged 19, 15 and 4.
When met outside the court, Rahim said the judgment was too lenient compared to what Abang Ibrahim had done to his son.
"I accept his apology and I do not bear any grudges against him, but 10 years' jail is just too lenient.
"It has been hard for me not having my son at home."
