Actor dies of cancer


Well-known film and TV drama actor Shukery Hashim died of pancreatic cancer at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre in Cheras at 1.45pm yesterday. He was 55.

Shukery was admitted to the hospital last Friday after complaining of stomach-ache.

His wife, Faridah Md Desa, 51, said he had undergone a six-hour operation to remove a growth on his pancreas at Selayang Hospital on April 22.

"He was supposed to start chemotherapy but he kept postponing it. When he complained about a stomach-ache, we sent him to UKMMC. While there, he complained about difficulty falling asleep because of the excruciating pain."

Shukery was buried at the Muslim cemetery in Keramat. He had five children.
Shukery began his acting career in RTM's radio dramas in 1975. He acted in hundreds of TV dramas including Cinta Gila, which is currently being aired over Astro Prima.
