Child victims could not identify 'Kampung Baru' duo suspects, say cops
KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 15, 2008): Police say the four young children who were victims of the "Kampung Baru" molester could not identify the two suspects rounded up here last week. Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Ismail Omar said DNA samples of the suspects' DNA have been sent for match test with evidence collected during the probe on the abduction, sexual assault and murder of eight-year-old Nurin Jazlin Jamsari last year.
"We are still investigating if they are involved but if there is no evidence to implicate them, then we will have to release them. The children could not identify them as their abusers," he told a press conference after receiving RM260,000 worth of Eye Glo Plus (eye drops) from CCM Bhd in Bukit Aman today. The two men aged 32 and 43 were arrested last Wednesday and Thursday (Jan 9 and 10) in separate locations here after they apppeared to resemble a photofit of the "Kampung Baru" child molester released by police.
On the dozens of crank calls received by police and the family of Sharlinie Mohd Nashar, he said it was very unbecoming of such individuals to indulge in such acts when the race to find the victim is so intense. "This is so very irresponsible. At a time when when the whole nation is worried and is hoping the girl is found quickly, we have such people who want to play a fool and thwart our efforts. That is why we had to act by arresting them. Let this be a warning that police will not hesitate to act sternly on those who try to do such things," he added.
Earlier, in another press conference, Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Arjunaidi Mohamad said a 16-year-old boy was arrested by Bagan Serai police in Perak today for allegedly making false claims of knowing the whereabouts Sharlinie Mohd Nashar.
He said the boy telephoned Sharlinie's father, Mohd Nashar over the last several days and he is said to have also made demands in exchange for information on the victim. Although Arjunaidi declined to specify what demands the boy made, it is understood to be money. Police tracked down the boy who was picked up in his house in Bagan Serai about . He said the boy, who has been handed over to PJ police, will be remanded and held here for investigations into several offences, including extortion and mischief. Arjunaidi did not disclose if the boy was a still schooling or is a dropout. "We wish to warn those who try to confuse and disrupt our investigations by making such false calls to stop doing it as we do not take it lightly. We will take stern action against them. "We welcome those who come forward to give us genuine leads that help us find Sharlinie," he said. He added that another suspect, an Indonesian woman who made similar calls and was caught by police in Johor on Monday, has been remanded for three days and is also in the custody of PJ police.

It looks like the Police went on a wild goose chase again and use this arrest as a red herring to divert attention from the current desperate case of not finding Sharlinie. This is now a familiar police tactic to show that the case is not close yet and only after 144 days they make a move to arrest this suspect.
The dragnets used by the Police are full of holes to catch any culprits. And the reports from the earlier on-line editions are off the mark.
Following the arrest at on Sunday, the suspect was taken to an old building in Jalan Tun Razak where the suspect used to live.

PETALING JAYA: Police arrested a man on Saturday night in connection with the Nurin Jazlin Jazimin’s murder case. The arrest was made in Jalan Chow Kit in Kuala Lumpur. Eight-year-old Nurin's ravaged body was found in a sports bag last September, a month after she had been kidnapped. Police believe there may be links between her case and that of five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar, who went missing on Wednesday, and the case of the so-called "Kampung Baru molester." Sharlinie was abducted in Taman Medan, just a few kilometres from where Nurin's body was found. Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan Musa confirmed the arrest in Johor Baru after visiting Johor MIC headquarters, where MIC state deputy head Datuk S. Krishnasamy was shot to death on Friday. To assist their investigations, police on Sunday brought five kids believed to have also been victims of the Kampung Baru molester, to a building in
