They also confirmed that it was not possible to identify other vehicles or passengers  who were present at the scene.

The Computer unit further advised Court to seek the services of foreign expertise with regard to the investigations.

The late Thajudeen’s burnt body was found inside a car on the side of a road near Shalika Sports ground on May 17th 2012.
