Colombo Additional Magistrate Isuru Neththikumara today directed the CID to take into custody the real suspects behind the killing of rugby player Wasim Thajudeen and produce them in courts.

The Magistrate questioned in this manner when the case relating to the killing of Thajudeen was taken up for hearing where the CID submitted a report on the progress of the investigations carried out so far by them.

The suspects in this case who were present in courts, were former DIG Anura Senanayake, former OIC of the Narahenpita police crime investigation unit Police Inspector Sumith Champika and Prof Ananda Samarasekera who functioned as the chief JMO at that time. These suspects are presently on bail.

The police producing a progress report on the investigations carried out so far stated that on 17th May 2012 the day Thajudeen was killed, in the motor car that chased behind him, a youth was seated inside this car had been wearing a T-shirt with a name and a number which had been recorded by the CCTV cameras.

Police informed further that investigations are continuing in order to identify who this person was.

The CID also informed that they have requested for satellite Photos and Video clips on the incident from the NASA institute but the institute had not responded yet.

The CID also stated that up to now 1,200 persons had been interrogated and their statements recorded.

    It is worth to note Judge said to CID that they have not provided evidence to backed up any suspect. So I suggest they provide ALCOHOL and the wall that the car crashed into as real cause

    CID must drag this until a suitable govt is elected at the next general election.

    When we have critical problems Thajudeen, Lasantha and Eknaligoda coming out from nowhere to ignore everything. Those days we had crickets matches for "කෝකටත් තයිලය". Now these incidents coming on top. Shameless politics.

    The real suspects can't be booked. If done- that's the end of CID.

    The killing has taken place in May 2012. The investigators are still studying the pictures in the CCTV cameras in November 2018.?

    Rasheed Friday, 30 November 2018 11:16 AM

    The investigation officers knows the actual killer, but they are reluctant because they know their plight when the government changes.

    Citizen Friday, 30 November 2018 01:40 PM

    This is a clear plain case, nothing will happen until the creator will take control of it. Friday, 30 November 2018 02:11 PM

    This whole country will be cursed till the actual killers are brought to justice! Anyhow they will never escape final natural justice / divine retribution/ karma, during their lifetime!!!
