The Criminal Investigation Department was granted two more months by the Colombo Additional Magistrate to submit a comprehensive report over the progress into the murder of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen.
The two months period was granted by Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris when Dilan Ratnayake, Senior State Counsel at Attorney Generals Department requested for time to submit a comprehensive report on the progress of the inquiry.
Ratnayake told the media soon after the hearing that the incident which took place in 2012, was a well conspired murder with all evidence destroyed. “Even though the murder took place in 2012, the actual investigations began only about a year back, but I am hopeful that we will be able to mete out justice soon,” he added.
The CID has already sought foreign assistance to examine the CCTV footage, but Ratnayake added that this might take a while due to the various procedures they had to follow.
In February, the Colombo Additional Magistrate, ruled that rugby player Wasim Thajudeen was murdered, and ordered the CID to arrest the suspects in connection to his murder.
