* Sri Lankan court further remands former DIG involved in rugby player's death
Tue, Apr 18, 2017, 11:52 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 18, Colombo: A Sri Lankan court today further remanded a former senior police officer who was alleged of concealing evidence in the murder of national rugby player Wasim Thajudeen.

Colombo Additional Magistrate Jerome Trotsky today further remanded former Western Province Senior DIG Anura Senanayake until April 27, 2017 over the murder of Thajudeen.

Counsel Dilan Ratnayake appearing for the Attorney General told the court that the investigations on former Chief Judicial Medical Officer Professor Ananda Samarasekara, who has been held responsible for the missing body parts of murdered rugby player, will be concluded on April 21.

The investigations have been conducted on the misplacement of the body parts after the first post-mortem examination and the alleged irregularities during the examination.

Thajudeen died on May 17, 2012 in Kirulapone when his car crashed into a wall and caught fire. Earlier it was ruled as an accidental death but the recent investigations by the CID had found that the player was brutally tortured before his death with blunt and sharp weapons and the accident was staged.
