DNA test confirms it's Nurin Jazlin

Police confirmed the DNA test on the body of a girl found stuffed in a sports bag at a shophouse in Petaling Jaya Utama on Monday is that of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin who was missing since a month ago.
Petaling Jaya OCPD ACP Arjunaidi Mohamed said blood tests on the body and Nurin’s parents confirmed their blood ties.

He said Nurin’s parents were informed of the DNA finding this afternoon.

Nurin Jazlin, 8, a Standard Two pupil of Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Desa Setapak, was reported missing on Aug 20 after going alone to a night market near her house at Section 1 in Wangsa Maju.

The body of a naked girl, believed to have been sexually abused, was found by a shophouse owner at Jalan PJS 1 on Monday morning.
In KUALA LUMPUR, Nurin’s father, Jazimin Abdul Jalil, 33, refused to accept the DNA result that the girl’s body was his daughter’s.

“I am Nurin’s father...I know my daughter better than anyone else. My heart is saying the body is not my daughter.

“If police ask me to take the body, I will accept, I will perform the funeral rites and bury it. But I want the police to pursue the search for Nurin because I know Nurin is still safe out there,” the taxi driver told reporters outside the Kuala Lumpur Hospital mortuary.

Jazimin said he was sure the body was not his daughter’s based on her teeth and the scar.

He said Nurin had no gaps in her teeth and had a scar on her thigh.

Jazimin said he was informed of the DNA test result at 12.30pm by the Petaling Jaya police who summoned him to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital mortuary to identify the body.

Jazimin and his wife, Norazian Bistaman, 35, who were called to the hospital for identification on Monday did not accept that the body was their daughter based on the physical condition of the girl’s body.

A distraught Norazian told reporters she would accept the authorities’ decision.

“What else can I say. The DNA test shows she is my daughter. I will accept the will of God.

“As a mother, I still hope the body is not my daughter’s. Who is the mother will accept the reality that her daughter was raped and killed brutally.

“Only God will know the extent of my sadness and grief,” she said in tears.

Norazian said this year’s Hari Raya Aidil Fitri celebrations would be the most joyous and meaningful in her life in the event Nurin was found safe and sound.

“In fact, we’ve already bought Nurin’s Hari Raya dress and I will patiently wait for her return,” she added.

To add salt to injury, Norazian said while her family was grieving over Nurin’s disappearance, some people had the heart to ridicule her and her husband.

The housewife said the latest anonymous call she received yesterday from an unknown man who said that Nurin was under his care.

“I’m too weak and don’t have the energy to receive such hurtful calls anymore.

“I hope God will punish the murderer for the brutal killing of my innocent daughter,” she said, recounting the sufferings endured by her daughter during her one-month disappearance until her body was found stuffed in a sports bag.

Nurin is believed to have been killed 24 hours before her body was found on the stairs of a three-storey business premises.
