Malay Mail quoted the police source as saying that "investigations found puncture holes in (Nazrin's) neck, marks from an archery arrow". Police arrested the two stepsons as they both play archery.

The latest arrests follow the week-long remand of Nazrin's wife, Samirah Muzzaffar, and her ex-husband, both of whom were arrested on Tuesday night.

"The boys were picked up as part of investigations as it is learnt they both play archery and there were other leads upon interrogation with their parents that led to their arrest," the anonymous police source reportedly told Malay Mail.

The death of the 45-year-old Nazrin, who was found dead in his room on 14 June, was in August reclassified as murder by police

In August, a forensic investigation report by the Fire and Rescue Department suspected foul play in Nazrin's death. The report revealed that there were traces of petrol found on Nazrin's head, bedframe and mattress, as well as on his handphone.

However, a week after the reclassification, Nazrin's widow had alleged inconsistencies in the investigation, accusing the authorities of keeping them in the dark.

The murder investigation got the new twist when Samirah Muzaffar and her former husband were arrested past midnight on Tuesday
