The body of 52-year-old retired sergeant major, who is alleged to have committed suicide in Kegalle on Friday, will be exhumed today on a court order obtained by the CID because it had failed to remove the fingerprints from the body before burial.

Sgt. Major Ilandarage Jayamanne, who resided in Kegalle is alleged to have committed suicide after writing a letter claiming responsibility for the killing of Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickramatunge.

Mr. Wickrematunge was shot in the head at Attidiyain Dehiwala on January 8, 2009 by two gunmen on a motorcycle. (Rohan Kumara)

    How careless can you be ?. Because of the incompetency of the CID this poor man's body had to be exhumed. How many bodies had been exhumed like this during last two years ?. Is there any respect at all for a dead person in this country. ?.
