KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 25, 2015:
Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) today dismissed as untrue a WhatsApp viral report of a burst sewerage pipe in Jalan Raja Laut here.
“Our officers conducted an inspection in Jalan Raja Laut and nearby areas but did not find any burst sewerage pipe,” he told Bernama.
Tan said the circulated photograph could be of the leaking pipe of Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) in Jalan Raja Laut on Dec 22 that had since been repaired.
He also said it looked like a graphic artist had touched up the photograph to make the water yellowish.
Tan advised the people against circulating the false information.
