Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali's mother aged 82, passed away at 2.14am today at KPJ Damansara Specialist Hospital, following a stroke.

The menteri besar's political secretary, Shuhaimi Shafiei, said Che Tom Yahaya's remains would initially be brought to Masjid Darul Ehsan, Taman TAR, Ampang for the necessary process and prayers.

"The body is expected to arrive at the family residence at Kampung Klang Gate, Hulu Kelang around 9am before burial at the local muslim cemetery at 11am," he said in a statement in Shah Alam today.

On Feb 11, Mohamed Azmin was reported to have disclosed that his mother suffered a stroke four months ago and was being treated at the hospital.

He said Che Tom was improving and would soon be moved to the normal ward from the intensive care unit.

However, her situation became critical and the menteri besar said he was advised by doctors that his mother might not recover.
