Indonesian police chief: I know what happened to missing MH370
New mystery surrounds the disappearance of MH370 - after a police chief claimed he knew what happened to the Malaysia Airlines jet.
The head of the Indonesian Police Force, General Sutarman reportedly told a meeting of airline officials and senior police: "I actually know what had actually happened with MH370."
But the general - who uses only one name - did not reveal the information.
The Indonesian news portal, Kompas.com, said his comment was witnessed by representatives of Lion Air and several high-ranking police officers in Jakarta.
Not informed of report
Over in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur (KL), Inspector General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said he was shocked to hear the comments by his Indonesian counterpart.
Mr Bakar said yesterday (Sept 14) he was shocked to learn of the comments because Malaysian police did not have any information about the missing jet.
"I was not informed of any such report," he said.
"I would like to know which media and when such a report was published. I will ask my counterpart, whether he had said anything about the issue."
Flight MH370 dropped off the radar on March 8 as it flew from KL to Beijing with 239 passengers on board.
Malaysia's Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Lai, said the search and rescue team has found 58 solid objects on the southern Indian Ocean sea bed.
The Joint Agency Co-ordination Centre, he said, was in the midst of recovering the objects in the hope that they were wreckage parts from the ill-fated jetliner.
