Anura Senanayake concealed Thajudeen death evidence?

The Colombo magistrate’s court Yesterday (10) ordered the CID to investigate the police officers who had concealed the truth during the investigation into the death of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen.

The lawyer representing Thajudeen’s family, Mohamed Mishbaq, noted the then DIG Anura Senanayake had told Thajudeen’s father that no further investigation could be conducted as he had died in a road accident.

Judicial medical reports now confirm his death was caused not due to a road accident, said the lawyer, and sought an investigation against the policemen who had concealed the truth.

Accordingly, the court ordered the CID to conduct such an investigation.

Submitting a report, the CID also sought to investigate the then Colombo JMO Annada Samarasekara and other members of the board of examiners, saying they had acted irresponsibly.

The court accepted the request and ordere the Medical Council and the CID to investigate them.

The CID also said the CCTV footage collected from Kirulapone and Narahenpita junctions on the day of Thajudeen’s death were being investigated.

The IT unit of the Colombo University will help to identify a suspicious vehicle and its occupants.

The court ordered that the report into the footage be submitted within 14 days.

The further hearing has been fixed for January 07, BBC Sandeshaya reports.
