Water woes at Woodlands Drive HDB block continue 5 days on

Water woes at Woodlands Drive HDB block continue 5 days on

IT'S been almost a week since the body of a murdered maid was dumped in a water tank. Still, residents at block 686B Woodlands Drive 73 remained seized by fear. Some of them ponder: What if the maid had HIV? What if terrorists gain access to their water tanks? Others wonder what the fuss is about. Yesterday afternoon, one of the MPs for Sembawang GRC, Mr Vikram Nair, had a dialogue session with the residents at the void deck of the block. Read the full report in The New Paper on Sunday (May 22).
