The Police on Thursday said that the Judicial Medical Officer’s report into the mysterious death of former Havelock’s captain and Sri Lankan ruggerite, Wasim Thajudeen, had revealed that his death could not have been due to natural causes.
Police spokesman Ajith Rohana told the media that on the instructions of the Police Chief, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) had now taken over the investigations into the ruggerite’s death.
“The JMO report has clearly stated that this was not an ‘accidental death’,” the Spokesman said. Thajudeen died on May 17, 2012 in Kirulapone after his car crashed into a wall.
Meanwhile, the Spokesman said that fresh inquiries into the murder of Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickremetunga, missing Journalist Pradeep Eknaligoda, the Rathupaswala shooting incident and the Welikada Prison incident, by the CID have already commenced.(Chaturanga Pradeep)
