PETALING JAYA: The police picked up Cradle Fund CEO Nazrin Hassan’s (pix) wife, Samira Muzaffar and her two sons this morning.

Selangor CID chief SAC Fadzil Ahmat said the arrests were made at 6.45am.

“We arrested the wife and the two sons at their residence this morning.

“They are expected to be charged at the Petaling Jaya magistrates’ court,” Fadzil said, adding that the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) had instructed the police to arrest them under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.

Nazrin, 45, died in a fire in his bedroom at his Mutiara Damansara home in Petaling Jaya on June 14 last year, which was the eve of Hari Raya.

In the first post-mortem, Kuala Lumpur Hospital pathologists concluded that he died of injuries sustained in a blast after his mobile phone, which was being charged next to his bed, exploded.

Fire and Rescue Department investigators later discovered traces of petrol in the bedroom.

Police then reclassified the case as murder and questioned several family members.

Last week, a second post-mortem revealed that Nazrin died of multiple head injuries.

It was also reported that that the second autopsy report revealed the victim did not sustain injuries to the head due to a blast, as stated in the first post-mortem report.
