PUTRAJAYA: The bodies of the two Malaysian students, who were killed in a car crash in Russia on Sunday, arrived at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport near here late Friday.
One of the victims, Public Service Department (PSD) scholar Adzreen Dimyati, 22, was laid to rest at the Precinct 20 Muslim Cemetery in Putrajaya later in the night.
Meanwhile, the body of Mara scholar Hanisah Muhd Shah, 22, is expected to arrive in Dungun, Terengganu at 5.30am Saturday.
The two were travelling from Moscow Airport with five other medical scholars when their mini-bus collided with another, about 120km south of Moscow.
The undergraduates had just returned from Malaysia where they celebrated Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
All seven are Nizhny Novgorod State Medical Academy fifth-year medical students.
