NUR Airish Daniesya Norizal, five, who was scarred after she was splashed with a bowl of piping hot tom yam soup two years ago, has finally been awarded a compensation of RM403,018.74, reported Kosmo!.
Her mother, Nur Ashikin Md. Ariffin, 30, was overjoyed when the Kota Baru Sessions Court ruled in her favour on Tuesday, after two years of attending court sessions to fight for her daughter.
The court found Tadika Minda Elit responsible for the incident and ordered it to pay the compensation to Nur Airish Daniesya.
“My daughter was not only traumatised by the incident, she is also scared of hot items whenever she enters the kitchen,” said Nur Ashikin, adding that her daughter was also shy about mingling with friends because of her scars.
Nur Ashikin said the compensation received would be used to continue paying for Nur Airish’s medical expenses until she was completely healed.

Kota Belud Fire and Rescue Department chief Rozlan Osman said his team took more than an hour to clear the road by spraying water from a fire engine.
