SEREMBAN, Oct 13 -- An autistic child was found dead after being left in a van for a few hours at Taman Nusari Bayu 2, Bandar Sri Sendayan here yesterday,

Seremban district police chief  ACP Mohd Said Ibrahim said the police received a report on the death of the eight-year-old girl at 7.46 pm.

"Investigation found that the 34-year-old van driver should have sent the girl to a Day Care Center in Taman Nusari Aman. However, the driver returned home without realising the victim was still in the van,” he said in a statement here today.
