It is yet to be determined whether former Havelock rugby captain and Sri Lankan rugby player Wasim Thajudeen’s cause of death was homicide or accidental, Police Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said today.

He said the CID had not concluded its investigations into the tragedy.

“According to the evidence collected so far it can either be a homicide or death from natural causes. Investigations are continuing,” the spokesman said.    
ASP Gunasekara said on the instructions of Police Chief N.K. Illangakoon the investigations were taken over by the CID in February and the report would be submitted to Court after they were completed

Wasim Thajudeen was found dead in his car after it had crashed into wayside wall on May 17, 2012 at Kirillapone.

Police on an earlier occasion said according to the Judicial Medical Officer’s report Mr. Thajudeen’s death could be termed a homicide.

ASP Gunasekara denied reports that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s son Yoshitha would be arrested in connection with the tragedy. “These are false rumours and neither Yoshitha nor any others are to be arrested in this connection. We have not found any connection between Yoshitha and Thajudeen and we have not recorded any statements from Yoshitha either,” he said. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Looks like the people in the MS government has some kind of fear of of the MR family. There are enough proven cases against them already. Throw them all in jail and and investigate the other cases one by one. When they are out and about they can work full time to cover up their sins with the billions of cash in their hands. They could even offer a few billion to the judges.

    Will CID launch investigation to Millennium City betrayal and Batalanda prison? No one got prosecuted for those terrible crimes.

    The accident appears to be faked. No valid reason why the case was not investigated to a conclusion originally. It is fishy and suspicious. It looks as if the authorities want to close the case without proceeding further. Needless to say important persons are involved and they are being shielded.

    It has taken three years for the Police and the CID to open their eyes.

    Murder most foul. It is high time that Police act impartially and bring the culprits to the book.
