'Mommy will try to be strong': Zayn Rayyan's mother shares cherished moments on Instagram

PETALING JAYA: The mother of six-year-old Zayn Rayyan Abdul Matiin, the boy who was found dead near his home in Damansara Damai, expressed her grief on social media.

Ismanira Abdul Manaf, 28, posted a heartfelt message on her Instagram account while sharing old pictures of a playful moment she shared with her son at a restaurant.

"Abang, mommy cuba kuat ya abang (Abang, mommy will try to be strong)," she wrote in the post on Sunday (Dec 10).

The pictures were the latest shared by Ismanira after the tragic discovery of her son's body near their home last week.

With the background song of Salam Terakhir (Final Farewell) by Datuk Sudirman Arshad, the post has been liked by more than 4000 people and received 285 comments so far.

An Instagram user, rianamosalle, hopes there will be justice and the perpetrator will be caught soon.

"Stay strong, madam. Hopefully, the perpetrator is swiftly apprehended and receives a fitting punishment," she said.

Zayn, a non-verbal autistic child who had been missing since Tuesday (Dec 5), was found dead near a river just 200m away from his home at Idaman Apartments in Damansara Damai, 34 hours after his disappearance.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Hussein Omar Khan confirmed that marks had been found on Zayn's body and neck during the post-mortem.

The case was now being investigated under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
