The interrogation comes weeks after former Crimes OIC of the Narahenpita police, Sumith Champika Perera who was arrested by the CID for concealing information on the murder, shared vital information with the CID over the cover up of Thajudeen’s murder, including the details of several others who had played a part in concealing the murder.

DIG Traffic, Amarasiri Senarathne had also being questioned by the CID over the murder.

Thajudeen, a Sri Lankan ruggerite and former Havelock SC captain, was killed in Colombo in May 2012, and the police initially ruled it as a death by accident, however subsequent to a second autopsy, it was revealed that he had being murdered. Six suspects, including ‘Captain Tissa‘, the personal chauffer of former President Rajapaksa, who also served as a bodyguard to former First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa, and their sons, Namal and Yoshitha have been identified as possible suspects by CID.

    The whole trouble I find here is the “delayed” grilling of the respective suspects. For how long now this OIC crimes of Narahenpita Police was in remand custody? It was also reported that on evidence elicited from him the “Top” personnel would also be questioned. Did not that period give these “Top” officials to be prepared and get ready for the next move? Does that sort of thing happen in any other case of a suspect been grilled? No. When the first arrested spill the beans, the next in line is taken in immediately and grilled, without allowing any time for him/her to consult and get ready for their next move. Do the authorities “fear” to move forward or have they been “directed” to do so? Anyway let us see how it proceeds. In this case there are more questions than answers.

      “Do the authorities “fear” to move forward or have they been “directed” to do so? Anyway let us see how it proceeds. In this case there are more questions than answers”

      A spineless GOVERNMENT by the name of YAHAPALANAYA that still wanted to bury the atrocities of YAKKAHPALANAYA – considers the whole episode as of just wages for eradicating terrorism and defending the Mahanama Thera Buddhism!

      wHY do they only stay grilling ?

      If this was the case in ON German soils, the alleged men would have been convicted for the murder long ago actually. is that because the men caught by the murder are from VIP FAMLIES ? This country should change fully.. paradigm shift of all most any areas are the urgent need of the houR, if at all politicans want the nation to march towards civlized way of life – human rights respecting way of life… progressive nation… basta

    Is this and other cases involving the Rajapaksa’s a “Game of shape”? only time will tell. And who is investigating those who are trying to Shape (Sri Lankan term for Cover up) these cases? Hope CIA, NSA and INTERPOL are keeping a close eye.

      Our fellows here, just cant and wont do it proper. That’s it!

    It is more than obvious that the with the formation of the Yahapalana government incorporating members of the previous regime all manner of corrupt crooks harbored and nurtured by the Rajapakshe regime got an extension to carry out coverups or if that failed to engage stalling tactics. Ministers responsible for justice and law must be singled out for condemnation in this situation. Minister Wijedasa Rajapakshe comes in at number one as a culprit who can and should be blamed. He has proven ties to Avant Guarde whom he attempted to protect he also has proven ties to the Rajapakhes who graced his son’s wedding recently. This is behavior that is highly suspicous. There are others such as the current IGP in a very long list. The bottom line is that if the criminals are not brought to book then this government will fall due to the numerous underhand tricks that are being played by the crooks to come back to power. In addition to the stalling of cases that are in progress or concluded and awaiting prosecution there are cases that never got off the ground due to devious lies uttered by high officials who were staffing key institutions. To carry on as if none of this matters is the tragic trait of our current leaders RW and MS.

      Well said My3 and Ranil think they can survive by play games, like financing MR’s Uganda trip and permitting Wanse and his better half to travel using different passports. At this rate one fine day they will be in for a big surprise as
      sitting ducks.

    very interesting and surprising over the lethargic approach of the Police to take Anura in to custody. in any other cases, ppolice are taking the kith and kins of the suspects when they cannot apprehend the suspect. so it is understood some soft corner is being applied to the culprits of thajudeen case. lers wait and see.perhaps they must be trying to give him him less time in prison considering his age

    CID Grills Anura Senanayake Over Thajudeen Killing

    Its the same old stories repeated again and again, like pouring water on ducks back.
    This is our motherland Sri Lanka and the Yahapalanaya, the so called Protection is at its lowest level. Disgrace Disgrace Disgrace. Why do these parliamentarians wear the National Dress and European Suit. Put that dress down and wear the child’s shorts and shirt and then behave like a kid in parliament. Masses will accept even if its LamaPalanaya or WanaPalanaya.

    Better late than never. The killers know that they killed Thajudeen. Thajudeen had parents brothers sisters and friends. They must always be thinking about their dear departed and will seek justice. So are we. The perpetrators of this dastardly crime too are aware of this. The more the delay in bringing the culprits to book the more the culprits will suffer in their own minds that they committed this crime. More the delay more they will suffer.

    I agree with all the above comments. There was no law and order during the last ten years or so. The new government promised to investigate and punish the guilty. Whay we see is that the guilty are protected. Investigations proceeding slow, so that, the next suspect is given sufficient time to plan their statement, to protect themselves and protect others who are involved in serious crimes. Real murder. No better that Rajapakse’s rule. We Sri Lankans cannot manage to rule ourselves. We need foreign Judges, Foreign rulers and we need foreign training and a foreign Parliament (our Parliament members are a great
    disgrace to the democratic world. God, Our Lord Jesus, please bless our country.

    As I see it previous government killed Jadudeen only once and closed the case giving simple judgement and this government is killing Thajudeen again and again. Government doesn’t want to punish criminals they will keep dragging this case another four years. I kindly request this government please respect the dead and put a cap on this case and let Thajudeen to rest in peace, also stop giving hard time to his family too.

    Anura Senenayake is a real vulture.He has tortured so many persons in custody.He is responsible for several abductions together with DIG Vas Gunawardane during Rajapaksa regime to extort ransom money from Tamil businessmen in Pettah. Anura Senanayake while in CCD, severely tortured a businessman in Majestic City. This prisoner on his release was later abducted and made to disappear by Major Gen. Mahinda Hathurusinghe to hide transactions that the Major Gen. had with LTTE.

    While being the OIC of Peliyagoda,years back,Anura Senanayake colluded with the area Magistrate to dispose of the vehicles belonging to Mecantile Credit Ltd.which were court productions, without proper procedure and without selling them in public auction.This was exposed in a Court of Appeal judgment delivered by Justice H.W.Senanayake, an honorable judge.Had the Police Department taken action on this judgment at that time,such an officer would not have reached high ranks.
