Eight linked to Sg Selangor pollution remanded


SELAYANG: The police have remanded eight suspects linked to the latest water pollution incident that led to water cuts in the Klang Valley.

The eight – two company directors, aged 62 and 31, and six workers, including four foreigners – were held on Wednesday.

Their remand order, which expired yesterday, has been extended to next Wednesday 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.

The latest fiasco – the third major unscheduled water cut in a month – affected almost five million consumers in the Klang Valley.

The contamination of Sungai Selangor 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.
