Fri, Jan 6, 2017, 08:41 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 06, Colombo: The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Sri Lanka police today informed the court that it has identified the individual who was in the vehicle pursuing Wasim Thajudeen's vehicle on the night of his murder.

When the case was taken up for hearing today, Deputy Solicitor General Dilan Ratnayake appearing for the CID informed the Colombo Additional Magistrate that further investigations are being pursued with regard to the individual who was following Thajudeen's vehicle.

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 killed before the accident and the accident was staged.

The Additional Magistrate also extended the remand of former Senior DIG Anura Senanayake and former Officer-In-Charge of Narahenpita Police Sumith Champika Perera until the 19th of this month.

The two senior police officers are charged with concealing evidence of foul play in the death of the player.
