SEPANG: Bukit Aman has denied that Police modified the pictures of the two impostors who boarded missing MAS flight MH370.
Assistant chief inspector-general of police secretariat Asst Comm Datin Asmawati Ahmad said the pictures were video grabs from CCTV footage in KL International Airport.
“We did not modify the pictures. What actually happened was the two pictures were stapled together but the bottom portion of the second suspect’s photo was torn off.
“When we photocopied the photo of the second suspect, it overlapped with the photo of the first one,” she said when contacted Wednesday.
ACP Asmawati was responding to allegations on social media that police had doctored the photos of the two imposters as both suspects appeared to have the same pants and legs.
“Both photos are valid. The overlapping does not change the fact that the faces of both men are clearly visible,” she said adding that police hoped to clear up such confusion.
On Tuesday, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar revealed that police had identified one of the imposters as 19-year-old Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad.
He is believed to have been headed to Frankfurt, Germany and is not likely to have any terrorist link.
