An insider described a room made mysterious by piles of paperwork containing all personal secrets of passengers aboard the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
Malaysia's top detectives were reportedly working in a room full of personal secrets. The room is given the code name "the bunker" which is only used among the detectives.

Inside "the bunker", documents detailing passengers' private lives are to be found. Detectives were able to amass information about the passengers' families, friends, ex-lovers and even mistresses. Detectives had looked into the passengers' personal computers, phone records, bank records and browsing histories on Google.
The insider said that detectives were separated into three teams. The first team was tasked to investigate records on the plane's maintenance, structures and systems. The second team was tasked to investigate on the plane's operations related to flight recorders and meteorology.
The third team was called the "medical and human factors group."
"Only those working in that team are allowed access to the room because it is basically a room full of personal secrets," the insider said.
The insider said that the third team's mission was to get the profile of all passengers of MH370, determine the reason why anyone aboard would want to stop MH370 from reaching Beijing and why the plane's two communication systems were shut off.
The detectives working inside "the bunker" are still left clueless as to the identity of the person whom pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid was calling no more than two hours before the flight take off. The purpose of the call made from the cockpit was still yet to be determined.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said that the new underwater search - 60,000 square kilometres of the ocean floor, off the coast of Western Australia - for the remains of MH370 has a reasonable chance of finding the plane.
"If the plane is down there - and the best expert advice is that it did go into the water somewhere in this arc off the coast of Western Australia - if the plane is down there, there is a reasonable chance that we'll find it because we are using the best possible technology," Mr Abbott told ABC.
Mr Abbott, however, added that the new deep water search to be conducted by the Dutch firm Fugro Survey will start in the next month or so and would take up to one year.
