The Criminal Investigation Department today recorded a statement from Anura Senanayake, a former Senior DIG of the Western Province, in connection with the death of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen.

Sources said the CID had interrogated him for more than six hours.
On April 20, the CID arrested the former OIC Crimes of the Narahenpita Police, IP Sumith Champika on charges of covering up the investigation of the Thajudeen case.

The CID also recorded a statement from Traffic DIG Amarasiri Senaratne in connection with the case.

Earlier, Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Pieris had ruled that the death of Thajudeen appeared to be a murder and ordered the director of the CID to take appropriate action immediately to apprehend the persons responsible for the act.

The burnt body of Wasim Thajudeen, was found in a vehicle near the Shalika Grounds in Narahenpita in 2012. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Now the Sadins would have given enough evidence, main fish (Namal) should be taken into custody.

    This man got trishaw who usually park down Rajagiriya road assaulted as he didn't want any body parked on the road when his convoy drove down the road. Arrogance..Arrogance. Today he is being interrogated by his junior officers. I hope that whoever did wrong is punished irrespective of who he is. If they did not commit wrongs discharge them honorably.

    Let court clarify what exactly happened based on all these evidences and decide course of action for whoever the culprits even it takes long time.

    He was doing all the dirty work assigned to him by the previous regime. He was kept in the force by extending his period over and over again basically for that purpose.

    I am only very surprised that the CID took many years after the death of Thajudeen to quiz the man at the very center of the tragedy. Is he being protected??

    Kadupol Jothywansa Friday, 20 May 2016 10:13 AM

    Why there is such a delay to arrest the actual culprit, knowing the only Namal.

    Sharon Friday, 20 May 2016 10:15 AM

    Please give the same importance to other deaths as well. Why only Thaju, Eknaligoda? How about Lalith Athulathmudai??

    Law of the hand is gradually closing upon the criminal high flyers.
