Nazrin’s brother wants a second autopsy, police say.

The Magistrate’s Court in Petaling Jaya has allowed an application by the police to exhume the body of Nazrin Hassan, the Cradle Fund CEO whose death in a fire in June is the subject of a murder investigation.

The application is to enable the police to carry out a second post-mortem on his body.

The exhumation is expected to be conducted on October 8, although it is understood the grave would be dug up on October 3.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said that Nazrin’s older brother had lodged a police report on Sept 24, saying that he was unhappy with the post-mortem results by the Hospital Kuala Lumpur pathology department.

“Following this police report, we discussed it with the state prosecution director to exhume the remains for a second post-mortem,” Fadzil said in a statement on Monday (Oct 1).

He added that application to exhume the body was made to the Petaling Jaya magistrate court on Friday (Sept 28), and the application was granted on Monday.

A few of Nazrin’s relatives were seen arriving at the Petaling Jaya Court Complex about 9.40am today, exiting after 40 minutes.

Nazrin, 45, who died in a fire at his home in Mutiara Damansara on June 14, was found with 30% burns to his body at the upper floor of his double-storey house.

The case was classified under Section 302 of the Penal Code as murder after a forensic report from the fire department said there were traces of gasoline found at the scene.

Several people have since been remanded and released in the murder investigation, including Nazrin’s wife Samirah Muzaffar and her ex-husband, his two teenage stepsons, as well as his sister-in-law and her husband.
