A four-year-old boy has died under "unnatural circumstances" at his Toa Payoh home.

Muhammad Irfan Salam, described by neighbours as a lively boy though he suffered from fits, was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics on Monday morning.

No foul play was suspected after preliminary investigations, although police are calling it an "unnatural death".

Irfan's 41-year-old father was subsequently arrested the same day for drug-related offences.
