The body of Mr. Khuram Shaikh, a British National who was murdered in a brutal attack on December 25, has been returned to the United Kingdom in preparation for a family funeral.

Khuram’s brother, Nasir Shaikh, travelled to Sri Lanka on January 3 to oversee the repatriation of his brother’s body and to seek information directly from the Sri Lankan authorities about the circumstances of the tragic attack.

On the afternoon of January 4, accompanied by Acting British High Commissioner Robbie Bulloch, Nasir Shaikh met the Director of the CID to hear about progress in bringing those responsible for his brother’s murder to justice.

The Director of the CID gave his personal assurance to Mr. Shaikh that everything was being done to bring about a successful prosecution of those responsible.

Following the meeting Mr. Shaikh commented: “From the assurances I have received today I am confident that the Sri Lankan authorities have what they need to bring those responsible for the brutal murder of my brother, and the vicious attack on Victoria, to Justice. This is a very distressing time but I would like to thank all those involved in the investigation of my brother’s murder and those who have helped with his repatriation. For the sake of my brother and the rest of our family I hope that the investigation can now be brought to a swift conclusion.” (Source: British High Commission)

    cant they send the killers and rapists also because their justice would be more faire and fast.

    Offering money to relatives is an insult to the injury.
    Besides how much in rupees, when converted into Sterling pounds it will be peanuts.

    Tourists are definitely going to have second thoughts on visiting Sri Lanka. Its a shame that such dastardly acts can disrepute a beautiful country like ours. Not only is it a blow on our economy but also on our sovereignty as a nation.

    My deepest sympathies to the family of late Mr.Sheikh and may those responsible not only be brought to justice but also serve as a reminder to others who are involved in similar acts.

    jack Thursday, 05 January 2012 02:27 AM

    gnapala Thursday, 05 January 2012 02:46 AM

    Thomas Thursday, 05 January 2012 03:19 AM

    Our deepest sympathies to the bereaved family.

    Sorry, state of affairs in Sri Lanka, who cares?
