KUALA LUMPUR: Residents living in Segambut can now apply for low-cost housing (PPR) units in the area.

Segambut member of parliament Lim Lip Eng said City Hall was planning to build them at Sungai Udang in the constituency. Lim said the budget for the PPR project had been included in City Hall's Budget 2011. "We had asked the city council for a PPR in the area and now they have finally approved the budget for it. We are urging all residents in Segambut, who can't afford proper housing, to come forward and apply." Lim said that the housing scheme would be the first such PPR project in his constituency. "Segambut and the Bukit Bintang constituency do not have any PPR," he said after meeting residents at the proposed site in Segambut. Lim said residents could get the forms for rental of the apartments at the City Hall parliamentary office in Taman Tun Dr Ismail or at City Hall's headquarters in Jalan Raja Laut. When asked how many blocks of apartments would be built, Lim said he was unsure, but said that they would be 10 storeys in height, with a total of 560 units. They would be completed in three years.
Resident Hazmir Ekdan, 29, who rents a flat for RM400 a month, welcomed the idea of a PPR in the area. "My wife and I have been renting a home for many years and it would be good to get a PPR unit here. Who knows, we may be given the chance to own a unit one day." Another resident, P. Munusamy, 48, hoped City Hall would give priority to residents living in the area to rent the flats. "They should do this before allowing others to rent the units."
Mohd Zaki Yacob, 49, hoped City Hall would build the PPR away from the high-tension power cables located next to the proposed site. "There should be an adequate buffer zone between the cables and the apartment blocks for the safety of the residents."
Other areas identified for low-cost housing are Kampung Wira Jaya, Setapak (544 units), Kampung India Settlement, Kampung Pandan (480 units) and Setia Jaya, Setapak (400 units). City Hall will be spending RM301 million on these housing projects.
Those applying for these low-cost housing units must be Malaysians, with the husband and wife having a joint income of not more than RM2,000 a month. The couples must be working in Kuala Lumpur and the applicants must not own any houses or land within a 35km radius from the city. The rental per month will be RM124.

A pregnant store owner has identified five officers as being among her assailants. Chow Soo Meng, 36, a mother of two who is eight months' pregnant, picked out the five among 11 policemen in an identification parade at the Petaling Jaya police headquarters here yesterday. She also identified one of them as the person who had slapped her and taken RM20,000 from her. However, Chow said a female police officer who was also responsible for the missing cash was not in the line-up.

Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng who accompanied Chow urged police to do a thorough investigation.

"We have asked the Selangor police to take over the investigations which is being conducted by the Petaling Jaya police now," he added.

According to Chow, at least 10 men and a woman who claimed to be policemen tried to enter her convenience shop at Jalan Perkhidmatan, Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh, at about 6.30pm on Monday. Chow claimed that when she refused to let them in as they did not show any identification, the group cut the grill, barged in and handcuffed her. "They refused to let me know what offence I had committed but instead slapped me twice," she said, adding that the men then took several cartons of cigarettes, liquor, cell phone SIM cards and RM20,000 from her handbag. She also alleged that they removed the CCTV system from her shop.

OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed later said his officers went to the shop to investigate claims that drugs were being sold there. ACP Arjunaidi denied his men had stolen money from the woman but had instead seized RM15,900 as part of the investigations. He said the money was in police custody and they were investigating if it was proceeds from ill-gotten gains. "We will investigate her claims that she was slapped. If there is truth to her allegations, I will take action against those responsible," he said.
