Back in December of last year, the whole nation was shaken following the murder of Zayn Rayyan, a 6-year-old autistic boy who was found dead near a river after going missing for days from his home at Idaman Apartments in Damansara Damai.

Now, the plot has further thickened following the arrest of the boy’s parents, who were nabbed by police last Friday (May 31) and remanded for seven days starting on June 1 in order to aid investigations under Section 302 for murder.
