KUALA LUMPUR: Police have intensified their investigations into the murder of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin.
Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said they were working on several leads and added that the task force formed to investigate the case was still in charge of investigations.
On the SIM card which was flushed out of an Indonesian woman, Khalid said the matter was still being investigated.
The SIM card, which the 23-year-old Indonesian woman swallowed when she was picked up in Nilai last week, is believed to hold vital clues to Nurin’s murder.
The suspect is believed to have sent text messages to Nurin’s father Jazimin Abdul Jalil and made calls to the RakanCop hotline to check on the progress of the case.
It was reported that the woman, who had been warded at University Malaya Medical Centre since last Saturday, had refused to eat any solids.
The SIM card is currently at the police forensics laboratory in Cheras where experts are trying to retrieve data from it.
The woman is now the only suspect in police custody in connection with the case.
Police picked up four men and a pregnant woman in Section 7, Shah Alam, on Sept 27 but all were released after it was established that they were not connected to the case.
Nurin, a Year Two pupil of Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Desa Setapak, was reported missing on Aug 20.
Her sexually-ravaged body was found in a sports bag near a flight of stairs at a three-storey building in Petaling Utama on Sept 17.
