There has been a rather alarming news story around of late and it all has to do with the use of coffee by a dental nurse, to poison her boss.
Sounds rather grim, doesn’t it?
Coffee is something that should be a joy, not a source of poison.
What’s the story?
Ravinder Kaur has hit the headlines thanks to her court trial.
As reported by the BBC, this dental nurse has been charged with poisoning her boss, by adding mercury to her coffee.
The administering of a poisonous substance is denied by Ms Kaur.
Why the alleged crime?
Apparently Kaur was in trouble after disappearing for lunch and leaving a patient in a dental chair.
She had also received warnings for bossing her colleagues around at work unfairly.
After receiving a final warning, Kaur is said to have put mercury in her boss’s cup of coffee.
Kaur’s boss then suffered from sickness and stomach cramps.
Her boss, Ms Knowles, thought that the coffee did not taste quite right and when pouring it away, she noticed the residue of grey sludge.
Ms Kaur argues that she has been set up because of the fact she gave them warning that she was going to report an alleged breach of patient confidentiality.
The case continues.
