LCP Fahrurrazi went missing last week during a training in Brunei and his body was found in a river yesterday. Investigations are still ongoing to ascertain the cause of his death.
In a discussion thread started on Hardwarezone forum, some netizens put the figure at $5,000 while others quoted a higher figure of $20,000.
In contrast, $250,000 was given to China-born paddler Feng Tianwei for winning a bronze medal at the London Olympics recently.
LCP Fahrurrazi’s body was flown to Singapore yesterday as his family and friends bid farewell to him at a military funeral.
In an interview with the media, his father said he regretted not meeting his son when he returned for a brief period earlier this month as he was busy with his duties at the mosque.
“I ironed his uniform for him because no one else did,” he said in Malay.
LCP Fahrurrazi was reportedly the only son in the family. He has two sisters and his father is the sole breadwinner of the family.
