The Criminal Investigation Department is now calling in the main suspects allegedly involved in the killing of rugby player Wasim Thajudeen for questioning including his friends and acquaintances.

Attorney-at-Law for the Thajudeen family, A. Sathar M. Misbah said that the relevant law enforcement agencies were looking at Thajudeen’s friends and acquaintances who were in touch with him on the day of the incident and the day prior with regard to whether they possessed any knowledge about the killing.

“Concealment of probable suspects is a criminal offence,” Misbah said.

“Meanwhile, the Sri Lanka Medical Council has requested further time for the completion of the inquiry into former Chief Judicial Medical Officer of Colombo, Dr. Ananda Samarasekera who conducted the initial post-mortem on Thajudeen.

At the end of the day, they are all doctors. Therefore, I may have to kick up a fuss in Court on the next day when the matter is taken up for this issue too to be taken up,” Misbah added.
