The Colombo Additional Magistrate today rejected the anticipatory bail application filed by ex-Judicial Medical Officer Ananda Samarasekera over the missing body parts of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen, who was murdered.
In August, Samarasekera submitted an anticipatory bail application seeking an order preventing his arrest in connection to the missing body parts of Thajudeen. However, when the case was taken up today, the Colombo Additional Magistrate Dulani Amarasinghe rejected the application.
In August, Health Ministry Secretary Anura Jayawickrema in a report submitted to the Colombo Additional Magistrate said that ex-JMO was responsible for the missing body parts of Thajudeen’s body. Jayawickrema said that Samarasekera had acted in an irresponsible manner when conducting the first postmortem, in which Samarasekera ruled Thajudeen’s death was due to an accident. The ex-JMO had claimed that he had handed over the body parts to two minor staff to store in a freezer but both staff members had denied this.
