Increase in kidnapping cases, police investigators not functioning?

SHAH ALAM, 30 July: Kidnapping cases often reported in the media and on social networking sites have raised a new question that must be answered by the authorities.

Selangor Kini found that many believe that the actions of the kidnappers are closely related to the existence of a market that buys and sells children based in our own country.

Administrative Officer, Siti Norasyikin Saani, 30, is of the opinion that many greedy criminals are kidnapping because they already have buyers.


“Otherwise, why would they want to kidnap? There must be people waiting and ready to pay for their evil work.

“So, what is the function of the police, especially the SB (Special Branch)? Why are they not carrying out investigations and criminal intelligence to uncover this immoral activity?

“The SB has to investigate and find the cause of this because if there is no market, then those wanting to kidnap would feel reluctant to do so if it is difficult to sell,” she said.

Meanwhile, Siti Norhaniza Hassan, 29, also urged the police to work more efficiently to deal with the rampant crime.

“Malaysia is no longer a safe place. Claims that Malaysia is still peaceful feels like a lie. Clearly, many attempts of kidnapping happen and in previous cases where the children were not found, we do not know the fate of these children.


“The police, please carry out your function. The job of the police is to reduce crime. If the cases are increasing, what is the function of the police,” she said.

Prior to this, Sekolah Kebangsaan Bestari Jaya, Kuala Selangor, also issued a circular to parents about attempted kidnapping involving students of the school on June 16.

Similar measures have been taken by the Kuala Selangor District Islamic Religious Office to distribute circulars to religious schools under their supervision to be cautious about kidnappings.

According to statistics from the Bukit Aman police headquarters, there are 4,998 cases of individuals reported missing in 2013 and 2,382 have been found.

Meanwhile, there are 45 percent of missing persons cases involving teenagers and children aged 18 and below.

Among the missing children cases are the cases of Nurin Jazlin Jazimin, 8; Sharline Mohd Nashar, 5; Asmawi Jalaludin, 11, and Nurul Nadirah Abdullah or Dirang, 5.

They are among the children who met with misfortune when they went out alone even though the distance from their homes was not far.
