A team from Maldives Police Service has gone to Banyan Tree resort in K. Atoll to investigate the suspected plane debris found on the beach at the resort.
An official from the resort told Sun Media that a team from the Serious and Organized Crime Department of the Police has been active on the island since 3:15 p.m. today.
“The investigation team from the police are now meeting with the management of the resort and gaining information about the things found.” Official said.
The official said that a five to seven inch piece among the debris found is still left on the island and the management has decided to hand it over to the Police.
“Although some of it was taken to Thilafushi, there is still a five or a seven inch piece on the resort. It was left because it is small. The management has decided to hand it over to the Police.” Official said.

The man who posted the pictures says that they were taken on 31 May of this year.
The official from the resort said that they don’t know if the pieces sent to Thilafushi has been destroyed or not. And it would be difficult to destroy as well.
