Roof collapse at National Squash Centre

Stagnant water below the caved-in roof of the National Squash Centre. Part of the roof of the National Squash Centre in Bukit Jalil collapsed on Tuesday, adding another chapter to similar cases involving stadiums and public hospitals in recent months.

The roof at the centre underwent maintenance works two years ago but the centre had yet to undergo any major refurbishment since it was opened for the Commonwealth Games in 1998.

An office was destroyed while water managed to seep through certain areas of the centre.

The flooding, however, did not damage the courts or the Squash Racquet Association of Malaysia's (SRAM) office.

The centre comes under the purview of the Malaysia Stadium Corporation (MSC).

MSC chief executive officer Ahmad Harun Helmi remained tight-lipped over the incident.

"I have been instructed by Sports Ministry secretary-general Datuk Jamil Salleh not to give any statement," he said.
