According to new reports, approximately £20,916 has been withdrawn from the accounts of four passengers aboard the missing Malaysian plane which disappeared on March 8th while on its way to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
A bank in Kuala Lumpur, claim that they noticed the discrepancies in their accounts on July 18 and lodged a complaint to the police. The management of the bank said money from the accounts of three passengers was transferred to the account of a fourth passenger before the money was removed.
Assistant Commissioner to the crime investigation department, Izany Abdul Ghany, confirmed getting a report from the bank.
“We are investigating the case as unauthorised access with intent to commit an offence. We are getting CCTV footage from the bank to identify the suspects involved,’ Izany said, according to the Mirror.
”We believe the suspect withdrew the money through the fourth victim’s account via several automated teller machines (ATMs) in the Klang Valley.”
Flight 370 disappeared mysteriously five months ago with 239 people on board after diverging from its planned route.
