Islamabad, May 6 - The Pakistani investigators, who had gone to Jamaica to assist a probe into the death of the cricket coach Bob Woolmer, have said that there is still no hard evidence suggesting the coach was murdered.
The two detectives, Mir Zubair and Syed Kaleem Imam, in a 40-page report to the interior ministry have said that Jamaican authorities are yet to find any conclusive evidence to prove that Woolmer was strangled, The News reported Sunday.
Woolmer, 58, was found unconscious in his hotel room in Kingston on March 18 and was later declared dead at a local hospital there, hours after Pakistan team lost to underdogs Ireland in a World Cup game and got knocked out of the event in West Indies.
Jamaican authorities later revealed that Woolmer was murdered on the basis of an autopsy report that said that the Englishman died of manual strangulation.
Zubair, who was also the chief investigator in the 2002 murder case of US journalist Daniel Pearl in Karachi, said he and Imam had prepared their report on the basis of briefings in Kingston by Jamaican authorities and also whatever they had seen.
The duo had gone to Kingston on April 10.
