Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the police had to look at every aspect to rule out sabotage.
KUALA LUMPUR: The police are looking at every detail in the investigation of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370, and are even scrutinising the Boeing 777’s cargo of mangosteens as well as the food served onboard the missing flight.
“For example, when we knew there was a load of mangosteens onboard, we had to find out where the mangosteens came from. We tracked down who plucked the fruits, who packed them and shipped them out, and who put them on the plane.
“Then we had to determine who would have received them in China and who paid for it, and for how much. Imagine how many people we must interview to rule out sabotage and that is just the mangosteens,” Khalid said, adding that the fruits had come from an orchard in Muar.
Khalid added that the food served onboard was also scrutinised.
