Zayn Rayyan murder: Sock found in drained reservoir

PETALING JAYA: Police have discovered a sock in a water rseevoir near the location where the body of Zayn Rayyan Abdul Matiin was found on December 6th.

The sock was found after the police pumped water out of reservoir area earlier today.

Selangor police chief Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said that it is too early to conclude whether the f sock is related to the case of the six-year-old's murder.

He said that the sock will be examined and analysed first to determine whether it belongs to the victim or not. "We (police) found only one sock, but further verification is needed to confirm whether it belongs to the victim or not," he said when contacted today.

Earlier today, the police, along with the forensic team, pumped water out of the tank located about 200 meters from Zayn Rayyan's family residence at Block R, Idaman Apartment, Damansara Damai.

The pumping process was conducted with the assistance of the Selangor Fire and Rescue Department (JBPM) and the Selangor Department of Irrigation and Drainage (JPS).

The Royal Malaysia Police Forensic Unit vehicle was seen arriving at Block R around 9.30 am, followed by the fire department and JPS at 1 am.

The pumping process started yesterday afternoon but was postponed due to heavy rain in the area that persisted for over two hours.

The effort to pump water out of the tank is conducted to detect any new evidence that could assist the police investigation in the case. However, media attempts to get a better picture of how the process was carried out were hindered as they were not allowed near the location.
