A second autopsy report has suggested that the death of former Cradle Fund CEO Nazrin Hassan was due to multiple head injuries rather than an exploding mobile phone, reported The Sun.

Citing sources, the daily said that the report had been submitted to the Attorney-General's Chambers and the Selangor police.

Nazrin, 45, was found dead on June 14 last year after a fire broke out at his home in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Initially, Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd in a statement claimed that the first autopsy report concluded Nazrin had died of complications from injuries as a result of an explosion of a mobile phone being charged nearby.

However, the police suspected that Nazrin was murdered after a Fire and Rescue Department investigations suggested that foul play was involved.

Nazrin's remains were exhumed last October.

The police had questioned several of Nazrin's family members and his wife's ex-husband.
