RESIDENTS in Bandar Botanik in Klang, Selangor are fed up with the bad smell caused by dead fish floating in a man-made lake there, reported Makkal Osai.

One of them, identified as Datuk Lingam, said the situation began early this month and despite several complaints, no action has been taken by the local authorities.

He said the water in the lake turned green and fish began dying, giving out a terrible stink as the carcasses decomposed.

Some 1,900 residents in the area have been affected by the foul smell, he said.

Another resident, Datuk Thanasekaran, said this had occurred twice in the same lake.

Several reports have been filed with the Selangor environmental department, Klang Municipal Council and Department of Health following the latest incident.

 

> Makkal Osai also reported that a man in Tamil Nadu, who lost both arms in a freak accident four years ago, tied the thaali (sacred marriage thread) with his girlfriend after receiving arm transplants.

Narayanasami worked as a ward manager at a hospital before losing his arms in a road accident in 2015.

After struggling for three years, doctors attached a new pair of arms from a deceased organ donor in a 13-hour operation.

Shortly after recovering from the operation, the man married his girlfriend Nadiya.
