BUKIT ANTARABANGSA LANDSLIDE: PM's Principal Private Secretary Safe

House Buried In Landslide But PM's Principal Private Secretary Safe

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 6 (Bernama) -- The prime minister's principal private secretary, Datuk Mohamed Thajudeen Abdul Wahab, escaped the landslide in Bukit Antarabangsa, Hulu Klang, this morning because he was in his mother's house in Kampung Baru at the time.

He said he and his four family members slept at his mother's house last night because he had returned late from official business.

Mohamed Thajudeen, whose house was among 14 houses buried in the landslide, told reporters that he was informed of the incident by his neighbour at about 4am and arrived at the scene an hour later.

He said he had been staying in the house for 20 years and was shocked by what he saw at the scene.

"I thank God that I'm safe. Maybe it was God's will that I was staying at my mother's house and not in Bukit Antarabangsa (at the time of the incident)," he said.
