There is nothing to prove that the Rajapaksa sons were behind the incident: Asfan Thajudeen
In a social media page named ‘Justice for Wasim Thajudeen’, Asfan had made the following comment:
“As his brother and on behalf of the family I humbly request that you to refrain from using his name and pictures of him to make accusations in regards to his death. Please consider the consequences that would befall us, as the family has to deal with when these accusations are made.
“We genuinely do not believe that there was any foul play in regard to his tragic death and so far not one piece of evidence has come up to prove otherwise.
 The family has to deal with the loss everyday of our lives.


Our parents are finally learning how to live with this loss after accepting that he’s gone.
 These accusations and assumptions and a possible ordeal of another investigation are only going to impact very negatively on their progress and I very humbly ask you all not to continue with this. We all loved him dearly and now he’s gone, let us accept it, cherish his memories and let him
rest in peace”.  Speaking to the , Asfan Thajudeen, the brother of Wasim Thajudeen said that there was nothing new to be said.
“We as the family don’t really know anything else other than what is already there in the media.
In terms of what’s going on at the moment we don’t have any input
regarding it.
They are all still rumours. Also there is nothing to prove that Rajapaksa’s son was behind this. Wasim never had any quarrels with anyone and everybody loved him. Even what is in the media is not right or wrong. We actually have no reason to believe that there anybody could be behind his death. We still believe that it is an accident until it is
proven otherwise.”
