RESIDENTS of Kampung Bunga Raya, Kuala Lumpur, have claimed that they were misled.
They were told to move out of their homes after they signed a compensation deal in 1994, Malaysia Nanban reported.
They claimed that they had not received the new houses promised to them when they were given eviction notices on Aug 23.
About 50 of them have lodged police reports alleging that they were duped into vacating their homes to make way for a re-development project by a developer.
The paper said that the residents had been living in longhouses for the past 19 years and were promised that they could move to their new houses by 1995.
> Makkal Osai reported that a man in India died after medical workers at a hospital refused to treat him until he paid a deposit.
The paper said that security guard G.D. Karim, 59, was rushed to the hospital after he suffered a fall while on duty on Friday but the doctors demanded Rs35,000 (RM1,700) as deposit before treating him.
His colleagues offered to pay Rs10,000 (RM500) but the sum was refused.
They then sent him to another hospital but he died without regaining consciousness on Monday.
