KUALA LUMPUR: Eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, who has been missing since Aug 22, was seen being pulled into a van near a pasar malam in Wangsa Maju where she had gone.
Still missing: Eight-year-old Nurin had gone to the pasar malam in Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur, alone.
Sources said that a neighbour’s daughter had seen a man, believed to be in his early 20s, standing outside a van and later pulling Nurin into the vehicle.
Nurin is said to have resisted and overheard saying tak nak, tak nak (no, no).
Sentul OCPD Asst Comm K. Kumaran confirmed that police had received such information.
“We are now investigating,'' he said, adding that police had several leads to work on.
Police have classified the case under Section 363 of the Penal Code for kidnapping from lawful guardianship.
Nurin, a Year Two pupil of SK Desa Setapak, failed to return home after going to the pasar malam alone at 8.30pm that day.
The girl, the second among four children, usually visited the area with her elder sister, aged nine.
Her mother Norazian Bistaman, 35, allowed her to go on her own to the pasar malam as it was close to their flat.
