Even though the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) informed the Colombo Court yesterday that the phone calls received from the Presidential Secretariat to the then Narahenpita OIC had been deleted on the day ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen was killed, the CID also informed the Courts that the CPU which stores all details of phone calls has been recovered.
According to the CID, the officials of the Presidential Secretariat have deleted the data of all calls made from the Secretariat on that particular day. The officers who were in charge of the telephone call operations at the Secretariat have also resigned from their positions.
However, the CID has recovered the CPU which stores all details of phone calls, and is expected to carry out a further investigation on the matter shortly.
In early August, the State Counsel informed the Courts that the OIC of the Narahenpita Police had received several phone calls from the Presidential Secretariat on the day Thajudeen was killed.
