The investigation of Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Nazrin Hassan who was killed in a fire in his house last June, is expected to be finalised in the near future.
Deputy inspector-general of police Noor Rashid Ibrahim said they had recorded evidence from many witnesses including Nazrin's widow and family members and would complete the investigation papers.
“Many people were arrested, the widow and her ex-husband, stepchild and sister-in-law and her husband but have been released after being investigated.
“Hence, I would like to inform that we will complete the case soon,” he told the press after officiating the Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) Innovation Day 2018 celebration at Universiti Sains Malaysia.
On Aug 3, Nazrin's death was reclassified as a murder case under Section 302 of the Penal Code following an investigation by the fire department that found traces of gasoline at the scene.
He died in a fire at his home in Mutiara Homes, in Petaling Jaya, on June 14.
