(IIUM) student who missed the electric train (ETS) home to celebrate Aidiladha
due to the Light Rail Transit (LRT) service disruption this morning, caught the

And as a gesture of goodwill, KTMB offered her a new ticket free of charge.
Nurul Khairiah Ahmad Zaki, 22, who was among the passengers stranded at the
Gombak LRT Station for over an hour due to the service disruption, said she was
offered a ticket to Taiping, Perak scheduled for 10.30 am today.
“I was surprised to receive a call from KTMB, but I’m glad to finally be

Bernama had earlier reported Nurul Khairiah’s plight of not being able to
return home for Aidiladha after missing the train, as she could not afford to

The student, in her Facebook post, also thanked all those who had helped her
