Ex-Senior DIG Anura Senanayake Arrested Over Thajudeen Killing

Former Senior DIG Anura Senanayake was arrested this evening by the CID over the murder of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen, following several days of intense grilling over the murder. He was arrested for concealing information pertaining to the murder.

The arrest 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 Anura Senanayake with Gotabaya Rajapaksa

          Most of MR family members knew this whole operation. Gota must have known all this.This stupid DIG must have had a dream of becoming the next IGP and said no problem sir, I could look after him. In Lanka Deepa sinhala news paper to day has an article regarding him stating that there were were enough evedence that between 230-3.30 Am this DIG was witnessed in civil clothes at Salika Grounds on the day Thajudeen was murdered.So you can imagine what kind of planning was taken place prior to this murder.

      Anura S must be sent to jail for life for concealing a heinous crime , hopefully this will be an eye opener for the rest of military personnel. Laxman Hulugalla , SSP Ajith Rohana et al must get ready to justify their stunts as to whose instructions they were .

      Apparently Anura S was a very popular singer among his subordinates with” Mage Kirilli ” BS.

      Ben Hurling,

      Did you not hail the election of debater Obama Hussein man from Harvard sponsored by multinationals.

      more men have died during his tenure than G.W.Bush.

      When Passa was cornered at USA by the doctor father of trinco 5.
      Hussain and Hillary interfered with the US judiciary and had the case thrown away- comment of outgoing district judge of columbia.
      History was made in American judiciary wherein a President interfered.

      So i ask you why are you colour/race biased now that you say
      “Too good to be true. ”

      Can lankans govern themselves now that you voted MR2 from MR1??

      But this is the stage where the Case will take a complete turn –
      the next party to be named as who ordered the murder will now ensure
      the elimination of this arrested Officer, which possibility is very imminent ! This may be a political requirement too?

      A fair description of what goes on now as the Law,Order, Judicial process in this country – in the grip of the political establishment from the late 1960s. Will we ever get back that admirable system of independent Courts, Police, Judges – both of the lower and higher Courts? That was one of the finer features of this country that made us stand out in the region then.

        Its only for private matters that concern the ruling powers as well as a vast majority of the trolls.- its a new cultural fad from 48.
        But taken a front seat after 9/11- MR1 to MR2 only private matters.

        they make the laws they unscramble the laws and above all there is no urgency. Will MR2 have an election on completion of term??

        Money and Power are supreme nothing else. Its the coalition playing ella like S Power.

          Deepcut,

          I Agree. The world knows Sri Lanka is, in practice and actual fact, a virtual Banana Republic – now thanks to the Rajapakses. Our Police system and the judiciary are largely jokes.

          Venezuela, another rich country that was ruined by the demagogic
          despot Hugo Chavez is now lead by his trusted Deputy. Chavez, on his own and against Parliament and the Constitution, gifted
          Castro’s Cuba US$5 billion only a few years ago. In many other ways he ruined all Venezuela’s massive oil wealth. Venezuela is in the throes of a serious economic crisis. Mainline global media reports Venezuelan economy is so destroyed a hamburger that was below US$2 an year ago is today sold at US$170 rpt US$170 (vide BBC today) Queues for food, medicine, milk are miles long and on a 24×7 basis. Despite all intentions of Ranil-Mangala-CBK the worry is will Sri Lanka suffer the fate of Zimbabwe/Venezuela? God forbid.

            Backlash,

            What is important is to grab the opportunity that is coming soon with Trump to frighten the daylights out of Skinheads/Politicians and live together once again as equals. If Kerry could have done it with that one call. Jt’s should not quarrel among self and spoil the show.Don’t think of revenge but first get things done.Money and technology would flow very easily and resources like graphite could easily be turned to hi tech than export raw- its all there.Don’t need to sell women in ME its so sad there is no family life.

            What you are saying was known last October. was known when Xi started the corruption drive- Chinese folk are in a wait and see to start new projects. Most don’t borrow from bank because of fear.
            The shale oil tech 2 of USA has caused Saudi to pump full and Iran too- this is the cause of Venezuela issue (95% of e. Even
            Trump promising to write off the internal debt of $15Trillion owned by American billionaires. This is the best thing that can happen to the world- the arms dealers and misery.
            Bad loans given by china worldwide are coming out of the freezer. So Ranil got no money. Most of Chinas dealings with SA and Africa is on barter so a saving of 22% exchange that go to private American banks. So the carrot of Y as one of the international currencies and China cutting aid to North Korea.
            So when first and second economies sneeze the world gets the ripples of Al Nino.
            Unplanned production outages are picking up among Opec members with oil prices around $40 a barrel April to $50 may. – But no one is feeling this at the pump any part of the world– governments and politicians are swallowing it. Imagine from $155 and what difference. Venezuela’s oil revenues account for about 95 per cent of export earnings. Russia (Russia, where 50% of the federal budget,) Saudi Iran Nigeria follows in the same boat- all eggs in one basket. It’s the same as Lanka having only cricket to talk to UK but not to EU the biggest market. How Today’s Commodities Prices and Shifting Market Dynamics are affecting the Oil & Gas Industry. Stupid guys they are all fighting and let the oil run their lives without diversifying.

            Just Trump would change this Multinational control of our lives. Muslims taking over the protest in UK caused the strong anti-multinational protestors take a back seat. Stupid Muslims became the robots to multinationals- It’s a policy to put it crudely- you are clean here take some shit like the attack on Germany Japan or idiots playing caste bringing ladders down – social climbers.

            Look at it like this no one can bring the dead back to life but disarm everyone- back to square one when none carried arms.
            It will not be like Libya if folk come clean- like LKY in action.
            Gota would have been right guy but he played the ethnic card like most and made family fortunes. Living wages not stupid socialist Marx crap. then corruption won’t be a necessity because people at lanka are not like that from my experience- its when 1% want to live like arab kings it starts eg peter mandelson.
            Its the system like any corporation that has to take over- law order performance, living wages.- the only triple gem skin heads sit under tree go bare footed like gautama or disrobe nothing lost because it is possible to import buddhist monks too and there is no scarcity in the world.

      Muhammed Fazl ,

      Hey man , what’s up ? Fazl you must be awarded the bravery award for your courageous acts during our Mara’s terror period . i remember you single handedly challenging mighty (pseudo) Gota over numerous incidents openly , that was a time where no body dare to draw even a cartoon against the Baya Gota . don’t worry ,at least natural justice will be prevailed on these mass murderers.
      I think Civil society has a bigger role to play on these injustices , we must put pressure on AG to act swiftly and impartially , looks like new AG also following his predecessors foot path.

        Srilal,

        Fazi certainly deserves a bravery award for exposing
        the wrong deeds of the past govt. while they were in power but he is gone silent for some reason. Was he also threatened ? We should
        forget appealing to the Prez, PM and the Govt. to expedite the pending cases on corruption and political murders but as you said,
        must exert pressure on the civil societies all around the country to get to departmental heads like IGP, AG & CJ personally,and ask them to solve the existing cases at the earliest so that political
        thuggery, nepotism and corruption vanish from our country and punishments should be so hash so that no one will ever dare to engage themselves in such activities in the future. They will also get to know as to what and who is holding the cases, not allowing to be brought for deliberations.

        Srilal,

        Agree. Fazl has been pretty brave.

        However, by a twist of fate, unfortunately, he is heavily bitten by the Islamic religious bug as well.

        Fazl even whines about secular education. He is obsessed with controlling and opressing women’s sexuality.

        He loves Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Sultan Wannbe Islamic lunatic that is destroying secular Turkish Republic. Once envied as the model of modernity and progress in the Muslim world.

        A bit disappointing a smart Johnny like Fazl can buy these middle-age religious fairy tales without any critical thinking.

        So be mindful about that part of Fazl.

        Otherwise, hey, he is one hell of a guy.

        Cheers!

    These are just ‘shows’ to entertain the public from time to time and it would be more entertaining if Sunil of GYPCIES makes out a song on
    arrests, bail and discharge. Retired DIG Anura is in the hands of his
    past subordinates and he will feel at home with men at his beg and call
    in the super prison .He was only a middleman in this case and those who planned the murder and executed the order to kill are still at large. Don’t we think that this case will take another ten years to close and in the meantime, faces may change in the govt. Dead must be respected and the media should not use Thajudeen’s name too often and use it only when all the culprits in this case are gathered and the case is called in the courts. May his soul rest in peace.

    Any Kondey Bandapu Cheeno left in Colombo?

    Every move by the Police is orchestrated by Temple Trees. Let us all who supported the Yahapalanaya change stop pretending that the corruption and murder probes are not being manipulated for political purposes.

    There may be some justification for the string pulling because this is all about poiticians, after all. Ranil and Company have taken it to another level. He is attempting to do to the SLFP what the Rajapakses did to him and the UNP for 9 long years. Maithripala is the unwitting joker in the pack. No base, no tactical skills and a bunch of crooks who keep talking from all their orifices as his supporters.

    After Anura S. who? It is clear that those who wanted the poor boy, a young father, done away with had planned the story of a fake accident. So if Anura S. and the Police boss in Narahenpita wanted to look like an accident, they are part of the murder and not merely a cover up. If they are a part of the murder isn’t this the second Police bigwig getting involved in a murder of another Moslem man?

    Folks you seems to joke around Lankas mafia proxy boss de facto former IGP don’t underestimate him .After all as Shri said he owns Bake House through proxy and also he did “Mueseam Robbery 1” kangatta drama no body knows where his share of money lies(maybe in Panama}.This man once describe by lawyer Sunil Watagala man provides cover to Underwold thugs in open courts according to lankaenews.It is quite common to criminals going into remand & coming back so why not it will not happen in this case.I know good friend of mine who is businessman paid protection money to him when he was DIG Colombo.This man like former Ltte hair cutter turned fighter Thamil Chelvan had penchant media show.so we can see him soon out of remand with Bodyguards like Sajin Vass.If you see CID officer & accuse both dressed coat.This is just like king Kekille verdict.

    My advice to all is do not get overexcited over this arrest.

    We had many such arrests since My3 came to power. But all are out on bail or their charges dropped and enjoying life. Sajin is a good example. Even Gandasara is out there enjoying life though many were killed on his call to violence.

    This man Anura Senanayake will be out soon and will enjoy life to the full.

    What goes around come around.

    Hope others will learn from this lesson.

    Do not follow the foolish politicians advices.
    Follow your inner voice…..Inner voice must be impartial and wholesome.

    Officers those who work in every single public sector must understand that political power is in people’s hand.
    Political power is not permanent.
    Former DIG worked according to Gotabaya’s advice. Now where is Gotabaya.
    Anura is alone in the jail.

    The glory, eminence and resplendence are gone. Now Former DIG Anura Senanayake was transported to jail in a prison bus with hand-cuffed hands.

    Great lesson.

    FCID..Free criminal individuals department.
    If any of you think these “arrests” are going anywhere dream on.
    We live in a society where killers are given media coverage,voice cuts and released.(vaas gunawardne,rajapakse jr)
    Where FM and all politicos buy political insurance for a rainy day.

    Dear Yahapalakas! Well done. Can we have the same hurry to the investigation (if there any) of the killing of Lasantha Wickrematunge as well? I honestly hope, the revelations of the investigation will NOT stop the comments of the very yahapalana gundas among CT readership.

    The government should not wait for the cases against all the criminals to be built up.Taking into account the number of criminal cases coming up, wherever, it appears that there will be no end. If they wait to finalise the cases against all the crimes it would take ages for these criminals to be punished for their crimes. Bensen

    The Sri Lankan Police Department maintained a very good reputation from the Colonial time but all what gained from the Independence was crippled and damaged to its worst by Gotabaya Raja Pakse after he became the Secretary of Defense. He treated the Police like his own dealers ether to kill or hammer political oppose, Journalists, and minorities like Tamils Hindus and Christians. Those Senior officers who did not adhere to his command he transferred to North or East. One Good Example is Pujitha Jayasundara IGP. He promoted only those Seniors who adhere to his orders to kill Journalists like Lasantha Wickramathunge and many. He damaged the media organizations either by bombing or setting fire. He promoted corrupt Offices like Vass Gunawardana, Anura Senanayaka, Kulathilaka,and many such. Educated, honest, capable, officers were sent home by threttening to distroy their immage without promoting them. Anura Senanayaka who had only O/L qualification was given 95 marks at the DIG Interview Board while offices who had Law degreesand many Diplomas with international Training were given below 60 marks and not promoted. Vass Gunawardana had been given falls certificates in order to damage Investigations or the Judiciary.Anura Senanayake was the only officer who was given four or five year term extentions after he reached the age of 60 years, and now he spends the remand and jail term over plus plus to maintain the good will of Gotabaya. Thanks to Gotabaya for killing the proud history of Sri Lanka Police with rotten eggs.
