Two held to help in Nurin murder probe

Caught: Plainclothes officers leading the 32-year-old security guard into a car yesterday after he was arrested in connection with the murder of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin.

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have arrested two men – a 43-year-old drug addict and 32-year-old security guard – to help in investigations into Nurin Jazlin Jazimin's murder.

It is learnt that the drug addict was nabbed in Lorong Haji Taib in the Chow Kit area here on Saturday following information that he may be involved or have some information regarding the abduction, rape and murder of Nurin.

A team of police officers from Dang Wangi together with their Bukit Aman counterparts arrested the man at 11pm. He is being quizzed at the federal police headquarters in Bukit Aman.

The security guard was arrested at an abandoned building in Jalan Tun Razak after police received a tip-off that he resembled the photofit of the Kampung Baru molester.

Four girls who were victims of the molester, were also brought to the building by police to assist in investigations.

However, they could not give a positive identification. The girls were there at 3.40pm and left about 10 minutes later.

It is said the security guard owns a black Kriss motorcycle, resembling the one used by the Kampung Baru molester.

City CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Ku Chin Wah said the security guard was arrested at 10am.

He said the arrests were made under “Ops Sunti”, which was formed after Nurin's murder.

“I urge the media and the public not to speculate on the two arrests as it may jeopardise investigations. We will issue a statement if there is a breakthrough,” he added.
