KUALA LUMPUR: The owner of house No. 39 at Puncak Setiawangsa, the house on the tip of the landslide, was allowed to go home to retrieve personal belongings as demolition work continued.
The house, belonging to Afeef Abdul Qadier Mansur, was left teetering on the edge of a 60m slope after a landslide last Friday caused the retaining wall to collapse, taking the rear portion of the house along with it.
The roof of the house had already been removed.
According to police officers at the command centre in Bukit Setiawangsa, the houseowner was allowed to get some personal belongings, including a safe, using a crane.
Work to tear down the house began on Monday to stabilise the slope.
Two neighbouring houses could also be torn down to make way for a buffer zone from the slope between the collapsed embankment and neighbouring houses.
The houses belong to Setiawangsa MP Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique and Special Envoy to the United States Datuk Seri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis.
