He said that Mohammed Hanif, 85, died from kidney disease, and the former IGP’s son Abdul Rahmat Omar confirmed that his father breathed his last at 2.15 am at his residence in Shah Alam, Selangor.

It is learned that Mohammed Hanif’s remains will be laid to rest at the Heroes’ Mausoleum at the National Mosque after zuhur prayers today.
