KUALA LUMPUR: Police has ordered residents of five areas in Bukit Antarabangsa to evacuate as they were on areas deemed unstable following Saturday’s landslide which killed four people.

The affected areas are the Impian Selatan Condominium, all houses in Jalan 6A of Taman Bukit Jaya, all areas of Taman Bukit Mewah and the entire rows of Jalan 9 and 11 of Taman Wangsa Ukay, Selangor police chief Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar said.

Khalid said he had made a mistake when he said Kyoto Gardens condominium was affected.

The condominium was located outside the danger zone and far from the landslide area.

He said several residents of Jalan 9, Taman Wangsa Ukay had refused to evacuate their homes and police would be using other methods to persuade them to leave.

Khalid also stressed that residents in other areas affected by the landslide were not required to leave their homes. “Do not listen to rumours or news from other sources as they are being spread by people with ulterior motives.”

Khalid said residents affected by the landslide were advised to contact the search and rescue operation tactical base by calling their 24-hour hotlines at 03-4107 0055 and 03-4108 6321.
