Nurin's Murder: Man Arrested In Chow Kit

Kak Ton alerted me to a Star (online) report about the arrest of a man in connection with 8 year-old Nurin Jazlin's murder.

The report, datelined Petaling Jaya, said that the man was arrested in Jalan Chow Kit in Kuala Lumpur.
Nurin's brutalised and ravaged body was found in a sports bag on Sept, 17 last year, about 28 days after she went missing near her home in Wangsa Maju.

Here's the rest of the story:

Police believe there may be links between her case and that of five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar, who went missing on Wednesday, and the case of the so-called "Kampung Baru molester."
Sharlinie was abducted in Taman Medan, just a few kilometres from where Nurin's body was found.
Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan Musa confirmed the arrest in Johor Baru after visiting Johor MIC headquarters, where MIC state deputy head Datuk S. Krishnasamy was shot to death on Friday.
To assist their investigations, police on Sunday brought five kids believed to have also been victims of the Kampung Baru molester, to a building in Kuala Lumpur.
It is believed that Nurin was held there by her abductor.

Let's hope the police will get something substantial on which to go on.

Apology, earlier comment has a faulty link, repost below
There appears to be some confusion in linking the men arrested with Nurin’s murder suspect. Police based it on the close resemblance of the arrested with the Photofit suspect issued for Sharlinie. But when 5 Child victims were taken to the hideout, none could recall being there before. So the Police was on a wild goose chase diverting attention from the tremendous pressure generated by the missing Sharlinie.
