Ab­ducted girl found safe

>15-year-old re­unites with fam­ily af­ter ‘pan­icked’ cap­tors aban­don kid­nap plan


KA­JANG: A 15-year-old girl who was wait­ing for her school van near her house early yes­ter­day was ab­ducted by two men on a mo­tor­cy­cle op­po­site her house in Ban­dar Tun Hus­sein Onn.

How­ever, as the news of her ab­duc­tion spread like wild­fire in the so­cial me­dia and news por­tals, Nur Dar­leen Dazeera Azhar’s ab­duc­tors are be­lieved to have pan­icked and aban­doned their plan.

It is be­lieved the ab­duc­ters left the girl not far from her house about seven hours later.

A passer-by, who recog­nised the girl, picked her up and sent her home where she was re­united with her fam­ily. Po­lice said the vic­tim was shaken up over the in­ci­dent.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors learnt that her ab­duc­tors had held her at a house at an undis­closed lo­ca­tion.

Ka­jang po­lice chief ACP Oth­man Nayan said the vic­tim, who was in her uni­form, was walk­ing alone when she was found about 3km from where she was ab­ducted at 2.15pm.

He said the girl was later taken to the Ka­jang dis­trict po­lice sta­tion to have a state­ment recorded.

Oth­man said a school van driver had called the vic­tim’s mother at 7.10am, alert­ing her that Nur Dar­leen’s school­mate had spot­ted the girl leav­ing with two men on a mo­tor­cy­cle.

Oth­man said the driver went to Nur Dar­leen’s school, SMK Ban­dar Tun Hus­sein Onn, to look for her but could not find her.

Nur Dar­leen’s mother then called her hus­band who no­ti­fied the po­lice.

Oth­man said po­lice is­sued an alert and launched an op­er­a­tion to look for the girl.

It is be­lieved in­ves­ti­ga­tors have iden­ti­fied the sus­pects who were in­volved in the case and are track­ing them down.

It is also be­ing probed if the in­ci­dent was planned and if the vic­tim was aware of it prior to be­ing snatched. Po­lice also sent the teenager for a med­i­cal check up yes­ter­day.

In an­other in­ci­dent, a 17-year-old Form Five stu­dent was nearly ab­ducted in Ta­man Univer­siti In­dah in Seri Kem­ban­gan on Wed­nes­day.

The vic­tim had just got off a bus and was walk­ing home alone af­ter school when a car pulled over next to her.

The driver grabbed her, cov­ered her mouth and tried to push her into his car. How­ever, the feisty girl strug­gled and man­aged to break free.

When the girl screamed for help, the man pushed her to the ground and sped off in his car. She ran to her house and her mother called the po­lice.

Ser­dang po­lice chief ACP Me­gat Mohd Amin­ud­din Me­gat Alias said in­ves­ti­ga­tions are on­go­ing and no ar­rests have been made.
