The elder brother of Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Nazrin Hassan felt something was not right with the findings of the first post-mortem.
Dr Malek Hassan, who requested for Nazrin’s remains be exhumed for a second post-mortem, said the cause of death as stated was way off.
“I was told the cause of death was due to phone blast. I am a medical doctor with 30 years of experience and I felt the cause of death is not right,” he said yesterday.
Dr Malek lodge a police report requesting for a second post-mortem on Sept 24.
The second post-mortem is scheduled for Oct 8.
Several of Nazrin’s family members were present at the court on Monday.
Nazrin, who died in a fire at his home on June 14, was found with 30% burns to his body at the upper floor of his double-storey house.
The police had reclassified the case as murder following a forensic investigation by the Fire and Rescue Department.
Several people have since been remanded and released in the murder investigation, including Nazrin’s wife and her ex-husband, a married couple related to his widow, and two teenagers. – The Star
