THE circumstances did not merit a jail term, so Private Muhammad Abdul Qaiyuum Muhammed Iskander was fined $5,000 after pleading guilty to accidentally reversing a Land Rover into Second-Lieutenant Nicholas Chan Wei Kit, 21, killing him last July.

District Judge Jill Tan also noted that Muhammad Abdul Qaiyuum was still traumatised by the tragic accident, and is still undergoing counselling nearly a year later.

The 19-year-old, who pleaded guilty yesterday to causing death by driving negligently, was also disqualified from driving all vehicles for four years.
