DNA investigations have confirmed that it was National Thawheed Jamaat (NTJ) leader Mohamed Zahran Hashim - one of the two suicide bombers - who was killed in the Colombo Shangri-La hotel blast on Easter Sunday, Government Analyst's department sources said. 

A top officer of the Government Analyst's Department said the DNA investigations were carried out for several days using biological samples of the wife of Mohamed Zahran, his daughter and a sister. The report relating to this investigation is scheduled to be handed over to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) today (21). 

The information has been received by the security forces that the suicide bombers, who were killed due to the Easter Sunday attack on Colombo Shangri-La hotel, were the leader of NTJ, Mohamed Zahran Hashim and Ilham Mohamed Ibrahim. 

The DNA investigation was done to prove the veracity of this suicide attack. The Government Analyst's Department is scheduled to hand over the finalised reports regarding the attacks on Cinnamon Grand, Shangri-La, Zion Church in Batticaloa and Dehiwala Tropical Inn, to the CID.

The suicide bombers of the other churches such as Kochchikade and Katuwapitiya have also been identified. (Sujith Hewajulige)

    Such a long time to confirm. Our President has already confirmed that.

    Is there any point comparing his wife's DNA to his DNA unless she was biologically related to him (cousin or something) ?

    Tinkiriya Tuesday, 21 May 2019 06:58 PM

    For those donkeys who think of "Virgins", do you idiots know that that part of the human anatomy, as is in the worldly on this Earth, will not be resurrected? That's why it is "muddarass-pallum".

    We shall wait for the DNA reports of the babies of those seventy two virgins for fullest satisfaction.
