PETALING JAYA — The exhumed remains of Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd CEO Nazrin Hassan will only be reburied next week, pending completion of the second autopsy.

The remains, exhumed on Monday, was scheduled to be re-buried at the Seksyen 9 Kota Damansara cemetery today.

Selangor Criminal Investigations Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Fadzil Ahmat said the reburial was postponed as the second autopsy had yet to be completed, adding that the pathologist had requested for more time.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun was reported as saying on Tuesday that the reburial would take place today.

Nazrin’s remains were exhumed for a second autopsy at University Malaya Medical Centre after his older brother Dr Malek Hassan, suspecting foul play, requested a review.

The magistrate’s court allowed a police application on Oct 1 for the exhumation to facilitate the second post-mortem into the case that was now being investigated as murder.
