Malaysian police yesterday said the death of Cradle Fund CEO Nazrin Hassan, has been reclassified as a murder case in light of new lab results suggesting foul play.

Local portals in Malaysia are saying the latest lab report showed there were traces of petrol on his head, bedframe, mattress and handphone.

In a statement reported by New Straits Times, Selangor Criminal Investigation Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Fadzil Ahmad said, “The case of the death of the Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd CEO on June 14 has been reclassified as murder, based on the Fire and Rescue Department’s report on investigations into the incident as well as the post-mortem examination done on the victim.”

The 45-year-old entrepreneur was believed to have died of smoke inhalation after his room caught fire at his home in Mutiara Damansara. He was also reported to have suffered burns to 30 percent of his body after an exploding handphone set the room on fire.

Earlier reports said the post mortem report concluded the cause of death as being complication of blast injuries attributable to an exploding hand phone that was being charged next to him.

The Fire and Rescue Department reportedly refuted the claims, saying that they did not conclude nor suggest that Nazrin was killed by an exploding phone.
