Items believed to provide clues retrieved by police to trace Zayn Rayyan's killer

PETALING JAYA: Several items believed to provide clues in solving the murder of autistic child Zayn Rayyan Abdul Matiin were obtained by the police through house-to-house searches conducted in Block R, Idaman Apartments, Damansara Damai, here, last night.

Selangor Police Chief Datuk Hussein Omar Khan confirmed this and said the police are in the process of analysing the items to determine whether it is linked to the case.

However, he declined to disclose the type of items retrieved by the police during the inspection conducted by the Royal Malaysia Police Forensic Unit.

"We need to analyse all these findings first and continue to gather sufficient evidence," he said when contacted here today," he said.

Asked if the police issued any specific instructions for residents to remain in their blocks during the inspection, Hussein said residents could continue their daily routines as usual.

However, he clarified that there have been no positive developments in the case yet, and are still investigating to track down Zayn Rayyan's killer.

"If we conduct checks and they are not at home or outside the area, we will wait and call them for Mass DNA Screening."

Last night (Dec 12), the Police forensic unit conducted inspections for about two hours in each house in Block R of Idaman Apartments, Damansara Damai.

Two boxes were carried out in the examination to uncover additional evidence and clues to aid the police investigation.

These boxes are believed to contain evidence to assist in the investigation of the child's murder, whose body was found in the apartment area's drainage on Dec 6.
