SEMPORNA - Slain marine policeman Kpl Abdul Rajah Jamuan was buried with full honours at the Muslim cemetery near his home village of Kampung Bubul near here.

Senior police officers as well as personnel of various ranks joined dozens of Kpl Abdul Rajah's family and friends who braved a downpour to pay their last respects to him.

Kpl Abdul Rajah's parents Jamuan Ajuan and Kamsiah Indaman were the first to pour rose water on his grave followed by his widow Salamah Ahmad, who was seen constantly wiping away tears.

Among the senior police officers at the funeral were Deputy Sabah Police Commissioner Datuk Abdul Malek Harun.

Kpl Abdul Rajah was killed when eight gunmen attacked a marine police team at the Mabul Water Bungalows Resort late Saturday.
