‘No credible evidence’ that Princess Diana was killed by SAS: British police
Zee Media Bureau
London: The British police have reportedly said that there is no ‘credible’ evidence that would support the claim that a member of British Army`s special forces regiment was involved in the death of Princess Diana, her boyfriend Dodi Fayed and her driver.
The allegations surfaced after claims regarding involvement of present or former members of the Special Air Service in the incident that took place in 1997, as per news report.
Scotland Yard investigated the claims but concluded that it’s "not possible to prove conclusively" whether such claims had any basis, as per news report.
Princess Diana, her boyfriend Dodi Fayed and chauffeur Henri Paul were killed on August 31, 1997 after the couple left hotel Ritz in Paris being followed by the paparazzi.
Diana had divorced Prince Charles in 1996.
A British jury in 2008 ruled that Diana and others` deaths were caused by reckless speed driving by their driver who was drunk. It also blamed the chasing photographers for the deaths.
But conspiracy theories surrounding Diana`s death continued to surface, many accusing British and French intelligence agencies behind the deaths. Some also presumed royalty members to have hatched the conspiracy to kill Diana.
Also Dodo`s father Mohammed al Fayed had claimed that his son and Princess Diana were killed on the orders of British establishment.
