KUALA LUMPUR: The father of abused child Nandini is expected to be detained soon and police believe he will be able to to shed more light on the matter.
City deputy CID Chief Asst Comm Khairi Ahrasa said police had new leads on his whereabouts.
“Based on our investigations, he disappeared when the police report was lodged,” he told reporters yesterday.
He said police have the two guardians and the girl’s mother under remand until Friday.
“Investigations show the mother and couple who took care of Nandini had no connection,” he said.
A motorist found Nandini injured and hungry and walking along Jalan Ayer Jerneh here at around 4am on Oct 9.
It is learnt that Nandini’s mother had allegedly left her daughter in the care of the two middle-aged guardians before leaving for work in another state.
Nandini’s guardians told the police that they noticed that the girl was missing on Oct 9 but failed to report her disappearance.
Their failure to lodge a report led police to believe they might be responsible for abusing the girl.
Those with information should contact the police hotline at 03-2115-9999 or visit the nearest police station.
In an unrelated case, a taxi driver who robbed women passengers has been arrested.
“Based on our reports, we believe the taxi driver would pick up female passengers and drive them to secluded locations before robbing them and sometimes even outraging their modesty,” ACP Khairi said.
He said that based on interrogation, the man has been linked to 14 robberies.
