Out of all the suicide bombers who blasted themselves, ilham Ahmed Ibrahim, the second suicide bomber of Shangri-la-hotel had the calmest mindset during the blast,observing the CCTV footages Senior Consultant Psychiatrist Dr. neil Fernando yesterday informed the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCOI) probing Easter Sunday attacks.

While observing the CCTV footages before the Commission Dr. fernando said that Ilham was conducting the attack a few minutes after Zahran Hashim blasted himself at the restaurant in Shangri-la-hotel, and while that time Ilaham was aware that his colleague was no longer alive.

“Even in that situation, ilham was more focused towards his target and he was blasting himself near the elevator when people were trying escape from the hotel,” he said. The representative from the Attorney General’s (AG) Department had further questioned the witness regarding the blast conducted by Fathima Jiffry, the wife of Ilham Ahmed at the Dematagoda residence.

Explaining the situation Dr. fernando said that Ilham’s wife Fathima Jiffry must have had a hopeless situation and she had to blast herself with her children since she was aware that she could not escape from the situation. “If we are to analise her situation further, we have to conduct a psychological autopsy. It is the most valuable tool of research on completed suicide mission.this method involves collecting all available information of the deceased via structured interviews of family members and through phone records. Having access to all these information, we’ll be able to reconstruct her mind,” Dr. Fernando said. (Yoshitha Perera)

    He is a psychiatrist. He is no forensic psychologist. It is surprising how in Sri Lanka professionals have no qualms about talking authoritatively about things they are not trained to do.

    Coolest is not the word to describe these Cold Blooded Murderers. They are simply worse than animals.

    Jesus Saturday, 28 November 2020 08:41 AM

    For example like the Jews and Christians who kill too all over the world..

    Sam Friday, 27 November 2020 10:18 AM

    Is it another way to use the word "cool"? He was a blood thirsty killer who blew himself murdering many. Can he be a coolest killar? I doubt.

    SENA Friday, 27 November 2020 10:51 AM

    i think whether he was coolest or not, is not the question

    Gotslaw Friday, 27 November 2020 11:10 AM

    This commission is dumb, Why? Just to do a political drama this story is continuing.

    K.L Pathirana Friday, 27 November 2020 11:14 AM

    Don't try to be too 'COOL' by saying the things beyond your comprehension. This very statement alone will show our inability to analyze a complex CCTV footage by those who are selected as experts. It is not the mindset of a dead we're trying to understand here, it is the mindset of those who instructed, financed and gave assurance to them to carryout this plot.

    Ilham Ahamed Ibrahim made sure the organiser of the suicide attack Zaharam Hashim blew himself first as he did not want to be a scape goat of Zaharan.

    Rajasingham Friday, 27 November 2020 12:19 PM

    Raja Coolest is not the answer but he is a blood thirsty terrorist.

    Sinna Friday, 27 November 2020 07:28 PM
