The corporate figure died at 7.45am at the National Heart Institute (IJN) and would be laid to rest at the Bukit Kiara Muslim cemetery, Astro Awani reported.

He then ventured into the private sector, starting off as the managing director of Shah Alam Properties Sdn Bhd before later forming Emkay Group.
