I'he photographs of the dead body of Ms Arushi clearly indicate that thc assassin(s) had inflicted head injury and had slit her ncck. 'fhe

post -mortcm report shows a laccrated wound on thc left side of thc . ..i . .i skull in the parictal rcgion, with a conesponding fracturc of thb skull. ;: 'l'he'other lacerated wound abovc her left cycbtow had caused injury cxtending inside the skull cavity. 'l'hcsc injurics on ,ti" vital pait of thc body werc apparently inflictcd with somc hard suf,stancc capablc. olcausrng an rmpact with cbnsiderable force. 't'hc inipact in thd instant

'l'hc photographs also prove that thcre was no resistancc of scufflc 'ihc h""d bcforc the victim was immobilizcd or killed by her injuries.
:

injurics as can be judged by their severity, could not havc lcft any scopc lbr resistance once the injurics were inflicted. 'fhus, another

r

infcrcncc is that inflicting such severe hcad injuries-would.haijc lcd to j,. l 'the certain death of Ms. Arushi, even if no other*injury wc'rc to bc
