Attorney General's Department prepares to seek court approval to exhume the body of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen who died mysteriously
The Attorney-General’s office stated that it would seek court permission tomorrow to exhume the body of ruggarite Wasim Thajudeen who died mysteriously in 2012.
Earlier, the CID sought Attorney-General’s advice with regard to this case, and the court permission is sought tomorrow accordingly.
A senior CID Spokesman told our news team that statements from several persons have already been recorded in connection with the death of Thajudeen.
Meanwhile, Dehiwala police stated, besides police protection, the CID has also provided security to the grave yard on Hospital road Dehiwala where late Thajudeen’s body was buried in.
When the case was taken before the Colombo Chief Magistrate on July 27th, the CID informed the court that they suspect the death of Thajudeen.
The investigations into the death of Wasim Thajudeen revealed that late ruggarite had been tortured by attacking with a sharp object in his throat and also attacking him with a blunt object.
Accordingly, Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peries issued notice on Colombo former Judicial Medical Officer Ananda Samarasekera on July 28th to submit the final postmortem report of the Thajudeen death on the next case date, September 10th.
The order issued by the Magistrate to the former Judicial Medical Officer consists of 19 pages.
Ruggarite Wasim Thajudeen was suspiciously burnt inside his car, and his body was found in his car near Shalika Sports ground in Narahenpita on May 17th, 2012.
