I hope the 29-years old Hassian @Haslan bin Bajil will be arrested soon. I was trying to find his pictures online but to no avail. I hope those who actually have pictures of 'the monster' will upload it so that people can somehow help the PDRM to trace him.
Fourth man is sought over student's murder
Kota Kinabalu: Police are looking for a fourth man who they believe could complete the probe involving the murder of Universiti Malaysia Sabah final year student Sherliana Gediun.
They are hoping the public could help locate the 29-year-old identified as Hassian @ Haslan bin Bajil (pic), whose last known address was Kg Tandek in Kota Marudu.
Sabah Commissioner of Police, Datuk Noor Rashid Ibrahim, urged the public to contact the police immediately if they had any information on the man's whereabouts.
"We believe the man has gone into hiding," he said after the breaking of fast at Penampang police station. Those with information are advised to contact Tuaran Police Chief, DSP Suhaimi Hj Wiro at 088-791966 or 013-851 0065 or Investigating Officer ASP Mohd Taufik Maidin at 019-830 7272, or the nearest police station.
Three locals in their 20s, one of them believed to be a pirate taxi driver, were roped in less than a week after the decomposed body of the 22-year-old student from Kota Marudu was found at a roadside in Kg Lepasan Norowat, Tuaran on Aug. 28.
The trio's remand is set to expire today (Friday).
Sherliana was last seen by her mother and younger brother who sent her to the Kota Marudu bus terminal, where she took a van, believed to be a pirate vehicle, destined for the capital on Aug 22.
It was believed she was sexually assaulted before being murdered, and her body dumped in Tuaran.
Noor Rashid said police were still waiting for the DNA report, which is likely to take some time, to confirm if she was sexually assaulted.
"We believe she was murdered in TuaranÉher hands were also bound," he said, adding investigations were framed under Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
Meanwhile, he said police are still watching closely Sabah's maritime borders in light of the unrest in the southern Philippines, following the failed peace talks between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
