Water cuts: Two company directors and six others remanded in Sg Selangor pollution probe

SELAYANG: Eight suspects linked to the latest water pollution incident that led to water cuts have been remanded.

"The remand order on the eight suspects has been granted for seven days, from Oct 22-28 by magistrate Nik Mohd Fadli Nik Azlan.

"The suspects were represented by two lawyers," said Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fadzil Ahmat in a statement Thursday (Oct 22).

Two directors of a machinery repair company are among the eight men detained by police in connection with the latest odour pollution in Sungai Selangor that caused millions of consumers to be hit by another water cut.

The directors, aged 31 and 62, as well as six workers including four foreigners, were detained around 11.30am on Wednesday (Oct 21).

The latest water disruption fiasco – the third major unscheduled cut in a month – affected some 1.2 million account holders or almost five million consumers in the Klang Valley.

The contamination of Sungai Selangor, which was detected in the early hours of Monday (Oct 19), led to a disruption of water supply to 1,292 areas in Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Klang, Shah Alam, Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor, Gombak and Kuala Langat.
