Bandar Seri Begawan - The father of the late Nurin Jazlin whose badly bruised body was found stuffed in a sports bag in Petaling Jaya Sept 17 has thanked Bruneians who have offered prayers for the eight-year old girl, who was missing for nearly a month before she was found dead.
The father, Jazimin Abdul Jalil told his close relatives (a teacher and a lawyer) working in Brunei Darussalam for many years that he was touched by Bruneians who shared the nation's grief through the blog site - nurinjazlin.blogspot.com - which was set up after the poor girl went missing last Aug 20.
"Please relay my thanks and deep appreciation over the concerns of many Bruneians who followed the news through newspapers and televisions.
"I am absolutely touched by some Bruneians who even performed 'solat hajat' or requested prayers after my little girl was abducted.
"May Allah bless the good and kind-hearted Bruneians who shared their grief with me and my family over the loss of my little girl," he said to the relatives through text messages.
Nurin Jazlin, a Year Two pupil of Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Desa Setapak, went missing on Aug 20 when she went to the night market near her house by herself.
She was last seen being dragged into a white van by a man.
Her body was found stuffed in a sports bag and left outside a shop in PJ last Sept 17.
Her murder, the nation's most horrifying crime in years, has sparked nationwide outrage and anger and prompted talk that the girl was the victim of a serial sex offender.
As of yesterday, the murderers of Nurin Jazlin have yet to be found even though suspects have been detained and released over the past few days.
Yesterday news report stated that Malaysian police have identified two more suspects whom they believe can assist in investigations into the brutal murder of Nurin Jazlin.
The suspects, a man and a woman, were identified based on their photofit from public information.

On behalf of the family, we would also like to convey our gratitude for all the "solat hajat" conducted and performed nationwide during the frantic search for missing Nurin. The family has also made several requests to local imams within the vicinity of Wangsa Maju for more "solat hajat" of a different purpose - to capture the perpetrator(s). The sooner the capture, the safer it will be for all the other children.
