If for once post the Pakistani media claims you had thought that, the Woolmer yarn was over – consider again! It was this very media that a couple of days ago had to the contrary, claimed Bob Woolmer‘s death as no-murder, now it interestingly cites it as one.
The Woolmer case boils again – ARY TV reports claim that two champagne bottles supposedly mixed with poison were given to the deceased by Pakistan’s bowling Coach Mushtaq Ahmed.
Ahmed, a former leg spinner, turned bowling coach is also an activist of the Tablighi Jamaat Islamic religious outfit, a reason that had earned heavy criticism for the then skipper Inzamam-ul Haq, from the very outset, he had wanted the former as the bowling coach.
The Pakistan based news channel quotes Pakistan team’s media manager, Pervez Mir as saying, Mushtaq Ahmed apparently received the bottles from some other person and passed them to Woolmer. The channel also reveals that the team manager Talat Ali was witness to the episode.
This disclosure is one of its kind thus far in the investigation – it becomes unique, being the first instance where an official has come up with a name and an associated incident that may have a direct bearing on the case. This latest penetration into the case has for all the optimists, illuminated a ray of hope that this mystery surrounding Woolmer’s death could be unraveled soon.
The mind is lured to believe the untangled anecdote as the media and sources speculate that both Mushtaq Ahmed and Talat Ali are acquainted with the person/persons who handed over the poison-laced drink to Woolmer.
The report further states that champagne bottles were recovered from Woolmer’s room at the Pegasus hotel – this for once strikes the soul and instigate me to ponder if the bottles were found there, it would have been in the initial days and if so should have been one of the primary object for the investigation. However, sadly though it is exposed months later.
Sooner than later the champagne bottles become a momentous component of the inquiry – as the previous findings by Scotland Yard reveal that a high concentration of weed killer was found in Woolmer’s stomach. This has surely given the death mystery an errant twist – that has to some extent overruled the poison by snake venom or aconyte.
Expectations rage high as the conviction strengthens that this breakthrough could lead the frenzy cricket enthusiasts into the moment when the convicted would be nabbed. A Jamaican police team has left for London for further discussions with Scotland Yard, and is believed that the highly complex case could finally come closer to conclusion after the meeting.
