PETALING JAYA: The Magistrate’s Court here has granted a three-day extension for the remand of Samirah Muzaffar, the wife of Cradle Fund CEO Nazrin Hassan.

Samirah, 43, arrived at the court at noon today.

Her lawyer, LS Leonard, said she should be released on Wednesday evening.

Samirah was initially remanded for seven days following her arrest last Monday. Her first husband, who was also arrested on Monday, was released on Friday.

Samirah’s two teenage sons were detained as well after it was revealed that Nazrin, 45, had apparently suffered a puncture wound to his head believed to be caused by an archery arrow.

Police picked up the boys, aged 14 and 17, from a house in Kuala Lumpur after learning that both they and their mother possessed archery skills.

They are currently under a seven-day remand.
