in Latest


KUALA LUMPUR – Hardly nine days into operation, several acts of vandalism have already occurred at the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line stations namely Maluri, Merdeka, Bukit Bintang and the National Museum stations.

At the Maluri MRT station, two toilet bowls were damaged, while a door knob and faucet were found broken, MRT Corp Strategic Communications and Stakeholder Relations director Datuk Najmuddin Abdullah told Bernama when contacted today.

Apart from that, he said 10 benches at the Merdeka MRT station were scraped with some sharp objects, while the wall featuring the Rukunegara principles was climbed by children, hence running some of the words.

He said the Bukit Bintang MRT station was also not spared as rubbish, especially food packagings and cigarette butts, were strewn outside the station and newly planted trees were deliberately removed, trampled on and destroyed.

“A door of a women’s toilet at the National Museum MRT station was purposely broken by vandals. I just don’t understand why. – Bernama
