RM20k reward for info on Zayn Rayyan’s murder


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

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

“This 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 here yesterday, Bernama reported.

On Dec 5, the six-year-old autistic boy was reported missing in Damansara Damai near here and was found dead near a stream about 200m from his home at Apartment Idaman the next day.

A post-mortem revealed 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 anything solid pointing towards the perpetrator. This is the difficulty we are experiencing. However, we are still working on tracking down the individual,” he said.

He was then asked to comment on the 10 traffic cops from the Petaling Jaya district police headquarters (IPD) under investigation after being found in possession of RM3,000 in cash during a roadblock.

He said police have initiated a disciplinary action and they are also being probed under Section 29 (1) of the Minor Offences Act 1955 (Act 336).

Comm Hussein said police personnel on operational duties are only allowed to carry a maximum of RM100 in cash, and are required to declare any larger amount to their supervisor before going on duty.
