I never knew Mr. Thajudeen: Yasara


14 August 2015 11:59 am - 39     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A name that has come up with the death of Rugby player Wasim Thajudeen was of Yasara Abeynayake.  In her comments to the Daily Mirror, Yasara said, “I never knew Mr. Thajudeen nor have I ever even spoken to him. These rumours started back in 2012 by a website named ‘Lanka Leaks’ and it has spread like fire ever since then. I don’t know why they attach me to this story but they unfortunately picked me and spread it far enough for people to believe their false story.

When asked whether the diplomatic position she was awarded to serve in Australia had any link with the incident she said Mr. Thajudeen passed away in 2012 and I got my posting in mid-2014 so my posting had nothing to do with the incident. Also this incident had nothing to do with my break-up as I never knew Wasim. Yoshitha and I were engaged and it came to an end because our horoscopes did not match and his family was very superstitious about astrology related matters.This break-up with Yositha was just like any regular break-up but the sad part is that most people in the country decided to make it their business.”

Meanwhile, in an interview with our sister paper, the Sunday Lankadeepa Yasara has mentioned that she had wanted to speak to the media when the incident happened. “Most people discouraged me from resorting to it saying that it was gossip stories which were unfounded and to take no notice of them. It was not my intention to follow these gossip web sites. After some time those stories stopped circulating. But again after the elections it had come to the scene once again. Whenever I meet people they say things, which had greatly caused me and my family much distraught. This is unjustifiable. See the plight of people who are subjected to this harassment. It is my honourable request not to welcome all what is been published via the internet, and do not be in a haste to take decisions. Once the reports are released people would know the truth.

    johan Saturday, 15 August 2015 10:06 PM

    Her friend should be interrogated but I think she alsodisappeared from Sri Lanka.Well planned crimes are camouflaged always ,so it takes long timeto investigate.

    SAAJIDH Saturday, 15 August 2015 11:27 PM

    Tell us more about people who checks their horoscope after getting themselves engaged haha

    Gobba Sunday, 16 August 2015 04:44 PM

    But he knew of a Birth mark that you have in a very sensitive spot.

    Suren Sunday, 16 August 2015 10:19 PM

    Wasim Thajudeen said something about a birth mark, i guess if we can inspect your body for the birth mark, we can come to the conclusion if Wasim knew you or not!

    At the end of the day justice must prevail and all those responsible must be taken to task and punished , we are waiting to see how all of this unfolds after the election.

    Sheraya Sunday, 16 August 2015 11:14 PM

    BTW saw her and her father in Eksath kala karuwange sangamaya gathering on web sites.

    Independent Monday, 17 August 2015 02:35 PM

    This girl lives with guilt and sadness because of the things she did in past...... I feel sorry.

    vish Monday, 17 August 2015 10:35 PM

    Some people should really consider on re reading this article. Yasara never says in this that she was engaged to Thajudeen, or thath their horoscopes never matched, or that they broke up... " Yoshitha and I were engaged and it came to an end because our horoscopes did not match and his family was very superstitious about astrology related matters.This break-up with Yositha was just"Next time, get your fact straight before judging someone.

    SAM Tuesday, 18 August 2015 09:17 AM

    Read carefully before you comment. She did not know Wasim. She broke up with Yoshitha. Dont mixup like UNP.

    Jayan Saturday, 15 August 2015 09:33 AM

    Can you explain about the photos you are with Wasim Thajudeen.

    Cheers Friday, 14 August 2015 06:35 PM

    Anyone can drag a name to an incident but that does not mean he is or she is the party of foulPlay

    Ram Saturday, 15 August 2015 06:35 AM

    Can Yassara please for the benefit of all readers place on record her qualifications to hold a Diplomatic position

    Jaymon Saturday, 15 August 2015 07:24 AM

    too late the horse has bolted ... ad never knew she was a "DIPLOMAT".....

    de silva Saturday, 15 August 2015 07:32 AM

    kumar Saturday, 15 August 2015 08:21 AM

    very nice girl and innocent

    Nihal Amarasekera Saturday, 15 August 2015 08:21 AM

    Truth and nothing but the truth? Anyhow, I pity her.

    Sri Lankan Saturday, 15 August 2015 08:45 AM

    Why start talking now, just before elections and when the death or murder is being really investigated? Diplomatic posting, ha, haaa!!!

    Thomas Ranger Saturday, 15 August 2015 09:19 AM

    A very simple summation to the whole issue. She is lying. One time she says she has not spoken a word with Wasim and contradicts what she say about a break-up. No smoke without fire.

    Kj Saturday, 15 August 2015 09:30 AM

    Smoke.... Fire.... What next??

    Sim Friday, 14 August 2015 05:51 PM

    Why keep silent for so long when your name was dragged into this matter.

    lalith de Saturday, 15 August 2015 09:37 AM

    hm looks a good girl .. by the way whats her qualifications to have a diplomatic posting?

    rohani Saturday, 15 August 2015 09:45 AM


    leel Saturday, 15 August 2015 10:28 AM

    She can tell anything now. But she must remember that she has to tell those things in court under the lordship of prosecuting and Defence lawyers.

    Kumar Saturday, 15 August 2015 11:21 AM

    Amnesia like duminda

    shaq Saturday, 15 August 2015 11:29 AM

    I do not understand her story..rather confusing. She says she never knew him but was engaged to him or someone else. Something just do not add up.

    chandra Saturday, 15 August 2015 11:53 AM

    She clearly says she did not want to re act to gossip news. Now that it comes in main stream news papers she can talk and reply

    Cheenek Saturday, 15 August 2015 11:55 AM

    Oh you do not know him? How much were you paid to say this?Those involved may not be in power but have enough stolen money. Money can buy power in Sri Lanka.

    Dolby Saturday, 15 August 2015 12:35 PM

    “I never knew Mr.Thajudeen nor have I ever even spoken to him". If this is proven true in courts, I think the finger pointing needs to be some other direction. Otherwise, then there is no smoke without fire.
