The Telegraph said:
The hunt for Osama bin Laden might have ended eight years earlier had a Pakistani traffic policeman spotted the world's most wanted man in a car he had stopped for speeding.
The details are unclear, but according to Pakistan's official investigation obtained by Al Jazeera, bin Laden, his family and his two couriers along with their families would make occasional trips to the bazaar when they lived in Pakistan's Swat Valley during 2002 and 2003.
Maryam, the wife of Ibrahim al-Kuwaiti, a trusted Bin Ladenguard, in her testimony to the investigation said they were pulled over by a policeman on one occasion.
In her evidence to the inquiry she said her husband "quickly settled the matter" and the head of al-Qaeda was soon on his way again.
