Genetech Company's Senior Scientist Ruwan J. Illeperuma informed Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Pieris today that his company was conducting DNA tests on the body parts of rugby player Mohamed Waseem Thajudeen who died under suspicious circumstances.

He said the company would file its report in court no sooner the tests were concluded.

Mr. Illeperuma said in his report filed in Court that the productions were sent to them by Colombo's Chief JMO Dr. Ajith Tennakoon on a Court order.
He said the productions were packed in two polythene bags and contained two rib bones, a tooth that was recovered at the second postmortem examination after the body was exhumed.

The report also states that the JMO had sent a section of a bone with muscles attached to it, two rib bones and an upper jaw tooth with tissues that were removed during the first postmortem examination.

It stated that Genetech had collected blood samples from Thajudeen’s mother Fathima Farisa Thajudeen on September 14.

The two postmortem examinations were conducted by Colombo's former JMO Professor Ananda Samarasekera and Colombo's current JMO Dr. Ajith Tennakoon. (T. Farook Thajudeen)
