Man held in Woolmer murder known to teams

Pakistan cricket captain Inzamam-ul Haq and assistant coach Mushtaq Ahmed were subjected to a “long questioning” by the Jamaican Police investigating the sensational murder of coach Bob Woolmer, a leading Pakistani channel, Geo TV reported today.

 

Inzamam and Mushtaq were questioned the longest as they were the ones who interacted with Woolmer the most because of their positions in the team, Geo TV said.

 

The television channel also claimed that the Jamaican Police had already arrested a man in connection with Woolmer’s death which the police are treating as a case of murder.

 

The Jamaican Police would disclose the name of the person in the next eight to ten hours. The report claimed that the person, who was not a native of Jamaica, was in touch with the members of the Pakistan, Sri Lankan and Indian teams.

 

Meanwhile, Geo TV’s CEO Hamid Mir said that the man was a frequent visitor of Woolmer and he was in contact with many members of the Pakistan team.

 

Asked why the channel was discussing the names of Inzamam and Mushtaq, he said, “We are not discussing these two persons as prime culprits or involved in fixing. I think these two people are important because one is the captain and the other is the assistant coach, and they had some kind of an argument with Woolmer on Friday when the coach pushed them for net practice and they went outside the ground.”

 

Mir said some Pakistan cricketers were asked questions about their links with this man. “The players are disturbed, confused and said they don’t know this person. But the police are of the view that this man was in contact with several cricket teams.”

 

Jamaican Police have so far put no restrictions on Pakistan’s team leaving Jamaica, however, the team has promised complete co-operation in the murder investigation of their former coach.
