Former Senior DIG Anura Senanayake and Former Crimes OIC of the Narahenpita Police Sumith Perera was ordered to be further remanded till September 7 by the Colombo Additional Magistrate today. They are currently in remand custody for concealing evidence with regard to the murder of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen.
In May, Senanayake was arrested by the CID following several days of questioning over the murder. The arrest was made after the Narahenpita ex-OIC shared vital information with the CID over the cover up of Thajudeen’s killing.
Thajudeen, the former Havelock SC captain, was killed in Colombo in May 2012 in what appeared to be an accident, but it was later ruled as a murder, with the accident staged.
