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)

    Everything is an illusion other than the systematic destruction of this Nobel nation. The bell will inevitably toll to those who carried out heinous crimes, then and only then will illusion become reality for them.

    It is a very sad situation. We thought that with the change of the government in 2015, something would happen. Unfortunately, there was no result. So frustrating. No justice.

    Its sad but don't expect justice, but remember retribution is slow but sure if not for the murderers it will be for their children's and their children.

    Ranjan Monday, 17 May 2021 09:58 AM

    The person who has the wound will have the pain, others don't have. There is God is living up who will punish the murderers sooner rather than later. So sorry to hear . My prayers are with Thaju's family

    Of 9 years of his death, five years were wasted by then Self Proclaimed Prime Minister RANIL WICKREMASINGHE under Maithripala Sirisena regime that was voted to office like promising so many such incidents to be investigated
