Tue, Oct 3, 2017, 12:49 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Oct 02, Colombo: The Criminal Investigation Division of Police has requested the Colombo Magistrate's Court to charge Former Colombo Chief Judicial Medical Officer Professor Ananda Samarasekara as the third suspect in the murder of national Rugby player Wasim Thajudeen and issue a warrant to arrest him.

The Criminal Investigation Department seeks to arrest the Professor over the disappearance of body parts of murdered national Rugby player Wasim Thajudeen during the post mortem examination.

Presenting the facts before the court, the CID informed Court in a statement that Dr. Samarasekara had acted to destroy the evidence during the postmortem of Wasim Thajudeen.

The CID further told the court that the senior JMO has threatened and pressured the junior JMOs Priyantha Amararatna and K C. Rajaguru, who assisted him in the postmortem examination, and taken steps to produce a postmortem report that concealed the truth.

Colombo additional magistrate Jeyaram Trotsky, who noted the submissions, said that Prof. Samarasekara has filed a petition in the Colombo High Court asking the court to issue a preventive order against his arrest.

The Magistrate ordered the CID to submit copies of the petitions to the court tomorrow and said he will take a decision after considering the petitions.
