Soon after the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak officially announced that the missing Malaysia Airline passenger jet crashed into the Indian Ocean, Chinese family members of those onboard the flight have called the airline and the nation's government 'true murderers' for hiding facts in the search mission.

The ill-fated Malaysian Airline Flight MH370 shortly disappeared after it took off from Kuala Lumpur on March 8th and since then there had been a frenzied search for possible debris across waters.

According to Fox News, around 10 family members, representing the families of those onboard the jet, said that the attempts of the authorities at searching the plane wasted large amount of human power and resources, losing the most valuable time for rescuing them.

One of the family members said that if they were to remember their 154 relatives, they have lost their precious lives and so Malaysia Airlines, the Malaysian government and the Malaysian military were the true murderers of their family members.

Another family member said that the authorities kept delaying the facts at all cost, concealing and hiding the truth and attempting to cheat the family of the passengers and people of the entire world.

Even as Australian officials aim to suspend their search efforts, the focus now is on retrieving the black box of the plane, which must be obtained before time runs out, as the 'pinger' keeps giving feeds only for 30 days post a crash.

Authorities are considering the possibilities of hijacking, sabotage, terrorism or issues related to the mental health of the pilots, the report added. (ANI)
