Ringkasan Mokhsan, 41, who gave the advice, said the most important thing to do is to always take good care of their children and to be always in the know of their children's movements so as to avoid untoward incidents.
He said this to Daily Express when met at the funeral of his six-year-old Nur Effa at the Muslim cemetery at Kg Salimbangun at 4.30pm on Monday.
"There is nothing else I can say because the incident (the death of Nur Effa) had happened," Ringkasan said, who works as a security guard, here.
Meanwhile, his wife, Nor Liana Keelo, 28, said while she has accepted it as fate she regretted that she had lost the opportunity of bringing Nur Effa to school.
She said Nur Effa was excited and looking forward to go to school this year as all her friends are also schooling.
"I did not expect this would happen to my daughterÉI am too sad thinking about this. We were very fond of her, we pampered her so much so that she still wanted to be bottle-fed at her age," she said.
Nur Effa, who was reported missing since Dec 31 last year, was found dead floating in a drum some 200 metres from her house.
A gardener found the fully clad body with face down but with her right hand missing inside the water-filled drum four days after she was reported missing.
Semporna Police Chief DSP Mohd Firdaus Francis Abdullah said on Monday that the case will be investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder after post-mortem result showed elements of foul play.
He said the result showed injuries and crack wounds on Nur Effa's head.
He urged those who may have information to come forward and contact ASP Zairolnizam at 089-781222.
