SEPANG: There is no truth to the rumour that five passengers did not board MH370 said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar.
"We already checked the flight manifest and everyone who booked tickets were on board.
"There was one Malaysian girl who cancelled her booking as she mixed up the dates," he said.
The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) had said earlier that there were five passengers who did not board their flights after checking in.
The DCA also said their bags were removed from the plane as per according to international standards.
“Take it from me. There was no such thing,” said Khalid when asked by a reporter about DCA’s statement.
On allegations that the authorities did not cross - check with Interpol's stolen passport database, Khalid said the database listed more than 40 million stolen passports.
"For that, we had to use prior intelligence to red-flag problematic passengers," he said.
