Well, what can I say. It's just like playing "Snake & Ladder", one minute you're in square 70, then suddenly after getting swallowed by the giant snake, you're back to square 1.
After having had our hopes dashed in the earlier two episodes, first the 4 Malay chaps, then the famous Sim-card swallowing Indonesian lady, you might have noticed that we didn't get too excited when the Police hauled, remanded and eventually released the latest two "suspects" in relation to the Nurin's abduction cum murder case.
Though we might not be too excited about it publicly but deep inside, I (at least) had this small hope that perhaps, this time around would be a different story, the breakthrough and the end to the painful months of waiting. I thought that this time around, maybe someone had accidentally talked about something that he knew about the case, or even the culprit itself unrealisingly boasted his top rated skills that had made our police force groping in the dark for months, or maybe, the police had been targeting these two guys for months and thought that they had collected enough evidence to nab the culprit and whatever evidences they had were strong and solid enough that could successfully nail the culprit in court. I was also pretty sure that the Police won't let anyone to continue belittling them with the "catch, release, catch, release" melodrama that had become the talk of the town.
But (sigh), the renewed hope was dashed yet again when the suspects were eventually released as the Police were satisfied that the "suspects" were not involved in the case at all. I wonder what kind of information that reached the Police that had led them to believe that they were suspects in the first place.
But I'm no Police and I don't really know how they work but based on the few conversations I had with several policemen at various levels from the No.2 to don't know what number, I am given the impression that until the Nurin's case is resolved, until then their minds would be unsettled as just like anyone else, it is in their greater interest to nab this "super elusive" culprit that had dented their image as an effective force in solving crimes, no matter how "complicated".
And now, when the chase for Nurin's perpetrator is still being "aimlessly" conducted (I hope not!), come along the Nini's abduction case. Oh what a timing?
Just who could Nurin's abductor/murderer be? Is Nini his latest victim? Just who is this "Catman"? Too many questions have remained a mystery. And the mystery is a mystery that no one can live with!
Oh God, please guide us, please protect us, please please please. Show us the light, allow us to live with a peaceful mind. Help us rid all the devilish characters among us in the community. In You we trust, O my dear God. Amin
