Two more people have been remanded for four days in connection with the murder of Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Nazrin Hassan.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said the married couple was detained at Kiara View, Jalan Dato Suleiman in Taman Tun Dr Ismail at about 10.20pm on Sunday (Sept 23).
“The man, aged 41, and his 39-year-old wife were detained to assist investigations.
“They have been remanded until Thursday (Sept 27),” he told The Star.
He added the woman was related to the CEO’s widow.
Four other people have been arrested in connection with the case so far, although all four were later released.
Nazrin’s wife Samirah Muzaffar and her ex-husband were arrested and remanded on Sept 4, followed by two teenagers who were detained on Sept 8.
Nazrin was killed in a fire at his home on June 14. Early last month, police reclassified the case as murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code following a forensic investigation by the Fire and Rescue Department.
He was found dead after being trapped in a fire on the upper floor of his house in Mutiara Damansara with burn marks on 30% of his body. – The Star
