PETALING JAYA: Police have met the parents of Zayn Rayyan Abdul Matiin for the second time to gather more information on the death of their six-year-old autistic child.

“We are focusing on this area first. It’s an ongoing investigation and it is too early to tell.

“We have also called in the person who originally found the body,” he said, adding that both parents were met to assist in the ongoing investigation at the Idaman Apartments on Friday (Dec 8).

A resident, who wanted to remain anonymous, said the route near where the body was found was hardly used and not many people knew about it.

“Even I am afraid to use that route because the area behind is filled with shrubbery.
