PETALING JAYA - Bukit Aman has denied that police released information to a Malay daily pertaining to the investigation on a flight simulator belonging to pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah.

The Malay daily reported that the simulator contained five landing sites in the northern and southern corridors of the ongoing search and rescue operation.

The sites were Sri Lanka, Maldives, Diego Garcia and two in India.

Quoting sources, the daily also reported that each landing site had a runway of about 1,000m in length.

Commenting on the report, assistant chief at the IGP secretariat, Asst Comm Asmawati Ahmad, said the police had never issued such statement, neither in an official nor anonymous capacity.

"We cannot reveal such information as nothing is conclusive yet.

"The flight simulator is currently being investigated by Bukit Aman's special task force," she said when contacted on Tuesday.

ACP Asmawati said the police would explore all possible angles during their investigations.
