KUALA LUMPUR: The Fire and Rescue Department has handed over two investigation reports on the death of Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd CEO Nazrin Hassan to police.

Selangor Fire Investigation Division assistant director Hafisham Mohd Noor said the department had sent the initial forensic report followed by the final report to police for investigation.

“However, I cannot disclose what are the elements found at the incident scene as it may affect police investigations,” he said when contacted by Bernama here today.

On June 25, the department’s director-general Mohamad Hamdan Wahid was reported as saying its forensic report on the death of Nazrin in a fire at his house in Mutiara Damansara had been handed over to the police.

He said certain samples had been sent to the department’s forensic laboratory here for further investigations.

On June 14, Nazrin was found dead after being trapped in a fire on the first floor of his house, with burns on 30% of his body.

However, police yesterday confirmed Nazrin’s death had been reclassified as a murder case following the fire department’s report as well as the autopsy.

These were based on the laboratory results and help from the K9 (dog) unit.

Selangor CID chief Fadzil Ahmat said no arrests had been made so far and police were still investigating.

“Individuals who can assist in the investigations will be called in to give their statements,” he said when contacted today.
