Although the CCTV footage showed a vehicle in the vicinity of rugby player Wasim Thajudeen's killing, its license number could not be matched with the licence No: WP KU6543 supplied by the CID, the Colombo University's School Of Computing (UCSC) said today.

It informed Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris that the poor quality of the video footage and the UCSC's limited technical facilities were the reasons for being unable to do so and recommended that the video footage be examined at a well equipped forensic laboratory abroad such as the FBI, MPS or the new Scotland Yard.

The UCSC said the CID had forwarded four DVD’s and a CD of the CCTV footage recorded in Narahenpita and Kirulapana.

It said the footage had been recorded during night and as such the strong lights from oncoming vehicles have distorted the image.

The UCSC also informed the Magistrate that it was unable to identify any human figures inside the vehicle.

Earlier, the Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris directed the USCS to examine the CCTV footage, relating to the killing of Mr.Thajudeen, and submit a report within 14 days.

The case will be taken up for inquiry on Thursday. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    There is a big difference between the terrorist and the innocent and who killed them.

    The UCSC is blindly shielding the former regime. many lecturers at the ucsc got scholarships to go abroad by serving the former regime

    citizen Wednesday, 06 January 2016 09:41 AM

    So who is going to pay for all theses costly forensic procedures?So the tax we pay with our hard earned money will go to find the murderers of this guy?

    How did the police get the car number in the first place? Do they want every criminal to commit crimes in full view of clear CCTV cameras.? What has happened to the investigative skills?

    Friend Wednesday, 06 January 2016 10:40 AM

    Thank you YP for dragging his poor family and friends through until the elections were over. Using this case to gain political mileage surely the epitome of Yaha Palanaya.

    clueless Wednesday, 06 January 2016 11:40 AM

    Ranjana Wednesday, 06 January 2016 12:23 PM

    chandu Wednesday, 06 January 2016 12:38 PM

    Why not send the minister who lied to a lie detector?

    Domartins Wednesday, 06 January 2016 12:41 PM

    A murder is a murder, no matter Sinhalese or Muslim.No CCTV was available in 88- 90 period.

    patriot (TM) Tuesday, 05 January 2016 06:16 PM

    Janathawa Tuesday, 05 January 2016 06:29 PM

    Ask Rajitha. He has seen all this.

    tlogi Tuesday, 05 January 2016 06:39 PM

    The longer the delay the less chance for the criminals being convicted.

    man Tuesday, 05 January 2016 06:43 PM

    Joke for 2016

    LAN Tuesday, 05 January 2016 06:48 PM

    I still wonder why the same type of effort is not put to find out the killers of 60000 Sinhala youth who died in 88-90 period.
