PETALING JAYA: The SIM (Subscriber Identification Module) card retrieved from the 23-year-old Indonesian woman detained last Saturday in connection with the abduction and murder of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, 8, has been sent to the celco that issued it, to help police in their investigations.
Police sent the SIM card to the company Friday morning as they wanted to know whether the contents and information could be retrieved from the card.
It is learnt that police are expected to know the results within the next few days.
It is also learnt that the woman had sent text messages to the police on several occasions and police are keen to know why she had swallowed the card and its contents.
The woman is believed to have sent SMSes to a police hotline number, claiming that Nurin Jazlin was in her custody days after the girl went missing on Aug 20 following a trip to a night market.
The woman was picked up last Saturday, from a clothes stall at a Ramadan bazaar in Nilai, Negri Sembilan.
She collapsed at the doorway when she was brought to the Petaling Jaya court house.
Bernama had reported that she had swallowed a SIM card when police arrested her. It is believed she was trying to hide the SIM card from the police.
After being remanded, the woman was taken to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre.
Her remand order was for seven days.
