KUALA LUMPUR: False information given in connection with the abduction-cum-brutal murder of eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, will only hamper police investigations.
The public are advised not to abuse the Rakan Cop hotline or the SMS service when providing information on the two people sought to assist police in investigations.
City CID chief Senior Asst Comm II Ku Chin Wah when contacted Thursday said he expects the public to be honest when coming forward with information as police have yet to locate the duo.
Police received several SMSes from the public who claimed the duo - a man and a woman, both said to be locals, were spotted at the Masjid Jamek area in Jalan Tun Perak, around 6am and 9am on Thursday.
Police who conducted checks in the area found the claims to be untrue.
"False or incorrect information given to us will slow us down in tracking the two who can shed some light into Nurin's case.
"Of course, like in any other criminal cases, we will act on any leads given but we need the public to cooperate with us," SAC II Ku said.
On Tuesday, police released the photofits of a man and a woman to assist police in investigations into Nurin's case.
The photofits were produced from descriptions given by the public.
Anyone with information on the duo can send SMS to 32728 or call 03-2115-9999 or access www.rakancop.net.
