The Criminal Investigation Department probing into the controversial death of Havelock’s rugby star Wasim Thajudeen would seek expert assistance to retrieve the footages captured on CCTV camera system that would reveal a substantial amount of evidence on the suspected murder.

Police Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said detectives would decide on sending the footages to the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the University of Moratuwa for its expert analysis to retrieve certain visuals.

He said that according to investigators, the visuals were not very clear in its quality and assistance of the Police IT Division would also be considered in collecting evidence out of that.

However, according to CID sources the movements of the victim’s car that was believed to have crashed leading to the suspicious death of the ruggerite had reportedly been captured in some of these footages.

CID sleuths attached to the Homicide Unit had found it challenging to retrieve the CCTV evidence as a considerable amount of visuals were said to have been deleted voluntarily or involuntarily, when the case was closed couple of years ago.

Usually the Police CCTV cameras in place at crucial locations in the Greater Colombo City limits are not preserved more than two years.

Colombo Chief Magistrate hearing the Thajudeen’s Case is to declare the actual cause of his death by tomorrow (December 10) when the case will be taken up again.

The five page JMO report to the suspicious death had been handed over to the courts last week. (Kurulu Koojana Kariyakarawana)

    Fooling the citizens again.... Maybe time we asked other nations to provide the satellite images of these locations on the day of the crime. Who knows the NSA might have copies of all the calls connected to this incident on that night...

    why not seek a professional data recovery company to do it? local or overseas , which will have no issues of retrieving them.

    Deals within deals most probably will not lead this case anywhere. Anyway, only time will tell. We are waiting and watching eagerly and closely. This is ONE of the MANY cases that would be permanently etched in the minds of the people about the Yahapalanaya governance, whatever its outcome. If this case is closed without consequences, then the Yahapalanaya voters would feel terribly let down and double crossed. Hope Maithri and Ranil understand the consequences clearly.

    Oh, it will end up with those Wedamahatayas who analysed the C4 videos. We know this would come when discussion were behind closed doors occurred.

    Why the CCTV recordings were not checked then and there? No one keeps the CCTV recordings for 3 years. This is simply to deceive the readers and to release the culprits

    Fire all from CID and transfer Minister Rajitha to head it. As per the past media report he had confirmed that VIP family members were seen on the CC TV
