Bangalore:Yet another twist has happened in Bob Woolmer murder case as a Pakistani TV channel on Thursday claimed that the two champagne bottles, said to have been mixed with poisonous substances, were passed on to him by the Pakistan's former leg spinner and bowling coach and Mustaq Ahmed.

Ahmed, who received the bottles from some other person, passed them to Woolmer, ARY TV quoted Pakistan's media manager for the World Cup, Pervez Mir as saying. Mir also stated that Pakistan team manager Talat Ali was a witness to it.

According to the channel, Mir stated that Ahmed passed on the two bottles to Woolmer and only Ali and Ahmed knew the identity of the person who handed the bottles.

Later Pervez Mir spoke to CNN-IBN and said, "There were two bottles given to Mushtaq, but he doesn't drink. So he sent it to Woolmer. Mushtaq cannot be looked at as a suspect. Gifting of champagne doesn't mean anything."

There were some reports from British media claiming that a rare weedkiller was mixed with the two champagne bottles recovered from Woolmer's room--one of which was left untouched.
