The case involving the suspicious death of rugby player Wasim Thajudeen was adjudicated in the Colombo High Court yesterday as former Chief JMO of Colombo Prof; Ananda Samarasekera who was the suspect in this case, had passed away.

High Court Judge Manjula Thilakaratne considering the submission made by the counsel who appeared in court on behalf of the relatives of the former JMO asserted that Prof Ananda Samarasekera had passed away.

Consequently the Judge closed further proceedings of the case.

The Attorney General had indicted the former JMO for covering up forensic evidence into the suspicious death of rugby player Thajudeen who died under suspicious circumstances near Shalika Grounds, Narahenpita. (By. T. Farook Thajudeen)

    His body should be buried by the side of Thaju to perform another postmortem.

    Well, now they will say Thajudeen killed himself. Sri Lanka is a becoming a lawless society, too much political inference with law enforcement. We will never know who killed Thaujudeen ever.

    In other democratic countries they will solve a crime like this utilising all their resources. But in Sri Lanka the case is dropped when the resistance are from the political power. SHAME!

    Our Law and justice may be fooled and played around with, But the final justice GOD and his judgment is final. No one can play around with that.
