Missing MH370: Police visit homes of pilot and co-pilot

SHAH ALAM - Police yesterday paid a visit to the house of pilot Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah and co-pilot First Officer Fariq Abdul Hamid here yesterday.

Three plainclothes policemen arrived at the guard house of Zaharie's gated-community housing area in Laman Seri, Seksyen 13, at 2.42pm in an unmarked, white multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) soon after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had ended a press conference in Putrajaya on flight MH370.

The policemen introduced themselves as officers from the Bukit Aman police headquarters to the security guards.

One of the policemen was seen displaying an identification card before obtaining a pass to enter the gated community.

Two police officers in a patrol car followed.

However, the patrol car left after about 10 minutes while the MPV was spotted inside the house compound for two hours and left at 4.46pm. Reporters were forbidden from entering the neighbourhood.

About 8.07pm, the same MPV arrived at Fariq's house in Seksyen 7. More than 10 police officers entered the house and left just past 9pm.

They were seen carrying two brown bags but declined to respond to questions by reporters.

Two men, believed to be Fariq's father and brother, were also seen getting into a police vehicle.

Hours earlier, two of Fariq's brothers were seen at the house. Ignoring reporters' questions, they entered the house for a few minutes before leaving.
