PETALING JAYA: Selangor forensic police have collected samples from the family home of murdered autistic child Zayn Rayyan Abdul Matiin as the investigation into his death continues.
A forensic team and three other policemen in plain clothes were seen arriving at the flat in the Idaman housing estate in Damansara Damai at 4.20pm, Bernama reported.
Zayn’s parents, Zaim Ikhwan and Ismanira Abdul Manaf, were seen arriving at the area before the police team entered their residence.

Zayn, 6, was reported missing at noon on Tuesday. He was found dead the next day near a stream about 200m from his home.
