Although the Harian Metro story (yesterday) did not specifically say that but I believe (if the story is true) that THAT is what it was.
According to the Malay tabloid, 13 year-old Nurul Syaza Fadzil was nearly sold off (presumably to a vice ring) to be a bar/night club waitress. Or, a bar maid, if you like.
And if the story is true, then we all should expect some solid outcome from police investigation.
Nurul's story is like a movie. One you won't enjoy, though.
She, lives in Kampung Nakhoda, Batu Caves, Gombak, with her family.
She was lured, or rather, threatened by another 13 year-old by the name of Ola to follow her to an apartment unit at the Kenanga Apartments near Pudu Jail. Accompanying them were two older girls.
At the apartment were 10 teenaged boys who forced her to sniff glue and drink alcohol. But whether or not she actually did has not been confirmed.
There she was told that she would be sold off to a nightclub very soon.
To cut the story short, her father, Fadzil Bakar, 53. was tipped-off by a friend of her whereabout.,
He soon launched a rescue --in the nick of tme as she was about to be sold off.

I'll update on the follow-up.
