Reports had surfaced that MH370 wreckage has been found in Bay of Bengal. However, if investigation of the search coordinators is anything to go by then the wreckage found in Bay of Bengal, does not belong to missing Malaysia airline. Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) is apparently responsible for the multinational search of the plane and according to a report by Reuters they have said that they continue to believe that MH370 came down in Southern Indian Ocean of Australia.
Currently, the plane is being searched in Australia and Bay of Bengal is far away from the vision of the current search. It was an Australian geophysical survey company GeoResonance who had first came up with the possibility of MH370 wreckage being found in Bay of Bengal.
GeoResonance suggested that it is not 100 per cent sure that the wreckage in Bay of Bengal belongs to MH370, but the authorities should not rule out the investigation.
"The company and its directors are surprised by the lack of response from the various authorities," GeoResonance said according to Reuters.
"This may be due to a lack of understanding of the company's technological capabilities, or the JACC is extremely busy, or the belief that the current search in the Southern Indian Ocean is the only plausible location of the wreckage."
Flight MH370 was carrying 227 passenger and 12 crewmembers. It went missing within a few hours of jetting out in the sky in March. It was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Reportedly, the search teams specific to Australia are using the information from satellites to find the location of the missing flight and the area claimed by GeoResonance does not come in the ambit shown by the satellite data.
"The joint international team is satisfied that the final resting place of the missing aircraft is in the southerly portion of the search arc," it said.
However, in spite of vigorous search operations there is no clue regarding MH370 that it has been found.
