Sharlinie may have been smuggled out of the country by such a syndicate and this is the angle the police are looking into, he said.
He was speaking to reporters after launching the First Asean Regional Crime Prevention Foundation (ARCPF) working group meeting yesterday.
He said this when replying to a question on whether Sharlinie's case was linked to international human trafficking syndicate.
Musa said the issue of human trafficking would be discussed during the meeting, which started Tuesday and ends today.
He said police would continue working with their Asean counterparts in collating information on human trafficking.
