KOTA BHARU: The Sessions Court in Kota Bharu has ordered a kindergarten to pay RM403,018.74 compensation to a five-year-old toddler for the former’s negligence after the plaintiff was scalded by hot tom yam soup two years ago.

Judge Adli Abd Ghalib allowed the suit filed by Nur Ashikin Md Ariffin, who is the mother of the five-year-old victim, Nur Airish Daniesya Norizal.


Nur Ashikin had sought for RM500,000 compensation against the defendant, Minda Elit Kindergarten, for their negligence that caused her daughter to suffer from burns and physical pain following the incident.


The court ordered the defendant to pay a sum of RM403,018.74 in compensation and damages to the plaintiff.


During the trial, Nur Ashikin told the court that she was shocked upon seeing her child at the hospital following the incident as Nur Airish appeared weak and suffered burns all over her body, including the face.
