Former Chief Judicial Medical Officer Ananda Samarasekera has being summoned to appear before a disciplinary committee appointed by the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC), in June, to inquire into the first autopsy carried out by him, on the body of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen.
The first autopsy carried out by a team led by Samarasekera ruled that Thajudeen’s death was a result of the accident. However, a subsequent autopsy revealed that the ruggerite was murdered.
Meanwhile, the CID today informed Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris that the CCTV footage on the accident involving Thajudeen has being sent for the review of foreign experts in UK and Canada.
The Additional Magistrate also ordered Mobitel to release all details pertaining to the phone conversations that reportedly took place between the victim and suspects.
The Colombo Additional Magistrate also further remanded the former Crime OIC of the Narahenpita Police Sumith Champika Perera, after he was found guilty of concealing evidence with regard to the murder of Thajudeen.
