Published on: Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Selangor: Two more people have been remanded for four days to facilitate the murder investigation of Cradle Fund CEO Nazrin Hassan.

The two are Nazrin's sister-in-law and her husband, aged 39 and 41 respectively. Petaling Jaya Magistrate's Court assistant registrar Hairul Azhar Mohd Ishak allowed the four-day remand for the couple.

They were being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder which carries a death sentence, if convicted.

The couple were arrested at their home in Kiara View, Taman Tun Dr Ismail here at 10.20pm last night.

On Sept 4, Nazrin's widow Samirah Muzaffar and her ex-husband were remanded for seven days. Also remanded were Nazrin's stepsons, aged 14 and 16 on Sept 9.


However, all suspects had since been released.

Earlier, the couple arrived at the Petaling Jaya court complex at 11am and were escorted by the police as they came out from the remand room at 1.40pm.

Previously, it had been reported that Samirah took the Fire and Rescue Department to task over investigations into the incident.

Samirah said the family had been kept in the dark since the incident, having received no information whatsoever from the department as it was a high profile case.


Samirah said the family had lodged a police report over the investigation process.

The Fire and Rescue Department defended its investigation, saying that everything was done in accordance with its standard operating procedure. Nazrin was found dead after his room at his home in Mutiara Damansara, caught fire on June 14.

Initial reports said the fire may have been caused by his exploding mobile phone, which was charging by his bedside.

However, following a report by the Fire and Rescue department, as well as results of the post-mortem examination, the case was later classified as murder.
