Former DIG Anura Senanayake who was arrested in connection with the murder of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen was further remanded until August 24.

Thajudeen’s charred body was recovered from his burnt car down Park Road on May 17, 2012.

Initial reports said that Thjudeen had died after his car had exploded after crashing on to a wall.

However, the Colombo Magistrate’s Court in February ruled that Thajudeen was murdered.
