S'gor MCPF offers RM20,000 reward for info leading to the arrest of Zayn Rayyan's murderer

SHAH ALAM: The Selangor Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) is offering an RM20,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of Zayn Rayyan Abdul Matiin’s murderer.

State MCPF deputy chairman Datuk Seri A. Thaiveegan said the reward is intended to expedite the delivery of justice in the case.

"The reward will be given through the Selangor police and has been approved by the MCPF chairman," he told a press conference at the Shah Alam district police headquarters on Tuesday (Feb 6).

On Dec 5, the six-year-old autistic boy was reported missing in Damansara Damai.

The next day, he was found dead near a stream about 200m from his home at the Idaman Apartment.

A post-mortem showed injuries to his neck and body, leading to the conclusion that he had been killed.

Earlier at the same press conference, Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said despite numerous efforts to track down the boy’s killer, police have not been successful.

"We have yet to discover any solid evidence. This is the difficulty we are facing. However, we are still working on tracking down the suspect," he said.

On the 10 traffic cops from the Petaling Jaya police headquarters under investigation after they were found to be in possession of RM3,000 cash during a roadblock, Comm Hussein said police have initiated a disciplinary action.

"They are also being probed under Section 29 (1) of the Minor Offences Act.

"Police personnel on operational duties are only allowed to carry a maximum of RM100 in cash," he said, adding that all personnel are required to declare any higher amount to their supervisor before going on duty. - Bernama
