LAHAD DATU: The remains of Nur Arisya Zafrina, daughter of Lahad Datu District Police Chief ACP Dzulbaharin Ismail, were laid to rest at Kg Hj. Khamis, Wednesday.

Earlier, ACP Dzulbaharin with other family members gathered and waited for Nur Arisya’s remains at the Forensic Department of Lahad Datu Hospital.

Nur Arisya, the youngest of four siblings, was discovered in a pool of blood at their house in Taman Tabanak on Tuesday.  

Police have ruled out foul play. She was 14.

Shahurinain said, the case has been classified as Sudden Death and Police have seized a semi-automatic Walther P99 gun believed to have connection with the case.

He said that no arrest has been made and investigation found no criminal elements in the incident. Police would continue to probe the matter.

Result of post mortem found that the cause of death of the teenager was due to a single gunshot to the chest. 

There was a gunshot wound on the right chest that hit the lung and penetrated to the back of the body.

Earlier, Inspector General of Police, Tan Sri Razarudin Husain said, the victim was discovered by her sister who just returned from school.

The victim’s father was in Kinabatangan during the incident for transfer matters as ACP Dzulbaharin assumed the post of Lahad Datu District Police Chief on April 1st, recently.
