Khalid Abu Bakar said the case “may go on and on and on” and urged people to be patient as he briefed reporters in Kuala Lumpur.

“We must be very thorough and we need all the time … you cannot hurry us,” the inspector general said. “We have to clear every little thing.”

Investigators believe the Beijing-bound flight was diverted deliberately by someone on board not long after taking off from the Malaysian capital early on 8 March.

But with no wreckage from the Boeing 777 yet detected, despite a massive international hunt in the southern Indian Ocean, they have few clues to help them determine who caused the diversion and whether it was malicious.

“At the end of the investigations, we may not even know the real cause. We may not even know the reason for this incident,” said Khalid.

He added that officers had conducted more than 170 interviews with relatives of the pilots and 10 other crew members. The investigation is still focused on four possible areas – hijacking, sabotage and personal or psychological problems of those on board – but so far, checks on the crew members and passengers have raised no red flags.

He said police were also investigating the cargo and even the food served on the plane to eliminate possible sabotage.

Airline rules require pilots and co-pilots to eat different meals in case of food poisoning.

Relatives of the 227 passengers, particularly the many Chinese citizens, have criticised the handling of the search and investigation, and confusing or contradictory statements by Malaysian authorities.
