The family of murdered rugger player Wasim Thajudeen say expecting justice over his killing has now become an illusion.
Today (May 17) marks the death anniversary of Wasim Thajudeen who was killed on 17 May 2012.
“Like a storm, years have passed by, things have quietened, justice is an illusion. .but the wound is still fresh burning within, a loss that can never be overcome. 9 years ago what happened at this time is still a question to us. . Unable to shut off, we are re living the moments of your last day Wasim. We miss you,” Wasim’s sister Ayesha Thajudeen said in a Facebook post last night.
Thajudeen was killed in a car crash which was initially pronounced to be an accident but was later investigated as a murder.
The government which took office in 2015 opened a fresh investigation into the murder but failed to ensure the main perpetrators were arrested.
The current administration has not commented on the future of the investigations into his death. (By Easwaran Rutnam)
