Rashween Sonia Kaur's father said, "it was all the more tragic as his daughter died on her 19th birthday." Her two best friends, Koshelavani Subramaniam and Easwari Mahalinggam, both also 19, died along with her when the car they were travelling in turned turtle after hitting a divider on the Federal Highway.

The car was driven by Rashween's friend, Jagdeep Singh who was badly injured and has been admitted to Sunway Medical Centre. Jagdip Singh was her just friend or boy friend, it is not yet confirmed

The all four teenagers from Klang were driving to Kuala Lumpur to meet some friends after celebrating Reshween’s birthday at a Klang restaurant. Jagdeep lost control of the vehicle at KM15.7 of the Federal Highway, near the Subang exit, at about 2.45am. The girls died on the spot of head injuries and the girls’ bodies were taken to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah for post-mortem.

Reshween Sonia Kaur was a former student of the Limkokwing University College of Creative Technology, while Koshelavani was doing a foundation course in Mass Communications there.

Reshween’s father said:

“I could not believe my ears when my wife called me about 3am and said Reshween had died. The realisation hit me hard when my wife told me she was at the scene of the accident. She was my only daughter. I don’t know what I’m going to do now without her.”

“I didn’t expect this. She was so smart and pretty. Whenever we met, we would share lots of stories. I wanted to see her succeed in life; never did I imagine that it would turn out this way. I will miss every moment I had with her.”

M. Mahalinggam, 57, father of Easwari said, "His daughter had recently completed a foundation course in Management at University Industri Selangor (Unisel) and was looking forward to furthering her studies."

“Just last week, she applied on-line to do her degree in Finance and Banking at the Multimedia University (MMU). She was supposed to go there tomorrow to hand in her documents,” he said.

“It’s an annual event for them to celebrate their birthdays together. I don’t know where they were heading to but I know my daughter had planned to meet her friends at Rashween’s house. She was so excited about the gathering and was dressed to the nines for the outing,” he said.

“I regret not having the chance to see my eldest child enter university. She had just filled up her application in fi nance and banking to pursue her studies at the Multimedia University in Cyberjaya. We were supposed to have gone there to submit her documents,” said father

M. Chiteradevi, 16, sister of Easwari said , "Nothing could describe her sorrow over losing her only sister. We were best friends. We shared a lot of secrets, things and even shared a bed together.It will never be the same again."
