PETALING JAYA - Police have arrested deceased Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Nazrin Hassan's wife, Samirah Muzaffar, and her ex-husband for murder.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said police arrested the two individuals in the wee hours of Tuesday to help with their investigations.
"We picked up a 43-year-old man at Sepang at around 1am.
"About an hour later we arrested the 43-year-old woman at Taman Tun Dr Ismail," he told The Star.
ACP Fadzil added that police have obtained a seven-day remand from the Petaling Jaya magistrate's court for the two individuals.
Nazrin was found dead after being trapped in a fire on the upper floor of his house in Mutiara Damansara on June 14, with burnt marks on 30 per cent of his body.
Police reclassified the probe as murder under Section 302 of the Penal Code on Aug 3, following a forensic investigation report by the Fire and Rescue Department, which cited suspected foul play in the death.
It was reported that traces of petrol were found in the deceased's room following a lab report by the department.
