Thajudeen Murder: CID Confiscates 26 Body Parts From SAITM

The CID has confiscated 26 human body parts from the SAITM laboratory in Malabe during a search operation carried out this evening to locate the missing body parts of murdered ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen.

Wasim Thajudeen

The CID with the assistance of forensic experts commenced a search operation for the body parts at SAITM this afternoon after the Colombo Additional Magistrate issued a search warrant allowing the CID to search for the body parts at the institute.

Last month, SAITM Chairman Dr. Neville Fernando said that SAITM does not possess any skeletal remains of the late ruggerite. In a statement issued in September, Fernando said, “SAITM records do not reveal that any specimen of the late Mr. Wasim Thajudeen was sent to the institution. SAITM states no authority has visited the institution or inspected any specimens that are in its custody, to date.”

According to the CID, ex-JMO Ananda Samarasekera had sent some of Thajudeen’s skeletal remains to SAITM in Malabe, although he initially claimed that he had given the body parts to two minor workers to store in a freezer. A claim the minor workers denied. Samarasekera currently serves as the Professor and Head of Department of Forensic Medicine at SAITM. During the original autopsy carried out by Samarasekera, he ruled the cause of Thajudeen’s death as due to an accident; however a subsequent autopsy revealed that the ruggerite was murdered.

    If this story is true, CID must IMMEDIATELY arrest both ex JMO Samarasekera and Dr. Nevil Fernando. Even the ex Medical Officer who worked at Kalubovila Hospital and gave a false report on another high profile “Murder” works in this Institution. The authorities must not DELAY leaving any room for fabrication of evidence. Swift action is necessary, before “Invisible Hands” interfere in this case.

      I believe it is best if the law and order minister would have been given to Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka. He has proved a lot in his life. He could do lot more the nation in that line rather than any other areas.

      We need strict laws to punish all these men with and without academic titles. Laws should be equal to all regardless of the status.

      Why the mentioned doctors to deny it first and then the investigation to be subjected to slow move – are all a puzzle to us today.

      The kind of treatments are beyond all bearing. They should finally learn to respect the dead. All thse to have ended up this manner, in the high days of former president, who calls himself a strong buddhist, is really not clear ot me today. Not even polpot led admistrations would have done the job this way.

      Authorities, please take strict actions aginst these brutalities.

      If the confiscated body parts belong to the deasesed sportler, both doctors and all others belong to the deed should be taken to custody without delay.

        May be among the confisticated body parts you may also find any parts belong to unknown murder cases.

        I have lost fully faith on lanken systems.

        I will never endorse if only lanken judges should conduct any investigations. This we dont need to prove again, we perfectly know lanken systems in general function.

        Both doctors should be happy today that former Adminsitration is no longer there. Had the same administration been in action, the body parts of the particular doctors would have been disappeared thanks to Gotabaya/Mahinda Rajapakshe. Merciless men would know any tricks being played in terms of missing tactics.

      but my problem is not to get as to why the investigations take long ?

      Have we got to read anywhere, that ex JMO in terms of the allegations regarding missing body parts of the dead sportler were questioned ?
      Why is it that difficult to get the inofrmation from the man directly ?

      If thisor that the like would have been the case on the west, they would be so prompt to arrest the man immediately ?

      May be lanka has no enough law to react accordingly ? This i felt after hearing that Gota is now allowed to leave the country. ANyways, we are an another poor nation in the world, even if we falsely call us mid income earning progress nation.

      Since the move of the investigations are on snail mode – nothing would work them to be arrested that easily. Be it good governance or any other form of governance – these investigations are no more acceptable. Either foreign invsaions of any other civil groups of the nation should raise a voice against these investigations being not at all speedy enough.

      They should better make aware the folks as to why they remain in the same phase, not moving any inch forward even if the records say that ex JMO should be make accoutable for missing those parts. Be it from animal or human being, they should finally be made accoutable not holding the standards. These are beyond all ethics and morals. Even in the much darker era in the US – in terms of Aparthied – they though held clinical trials based on black people going beyond the all ethics and morals, today we are serveral decades passed.. and the medicine focus on the standard methodologies in investigating the dead parts. Unfotunately in a country calling the majority as a innocient buddhist people, but all the authotities to behave like barbaric is no means accetable.
      Actually, LANKEN health related authorities should come to the street and protest against lanken medical professionals of the ex JMO kind:

      I am really sorry for the Wasims family – who are the real victims of the day.

      Not only their son s life is taken away but also the body parts of the dead had been stolen without giving the least respect to the dead -Pietyless.

      This can only be happened in this country – what more certifications we need nee to see the foreign recognition.

      This nation is fallen to all appalling levels due to a small fraction of thugs – whose rise was totally dependent on former state men.

      Daily news papers reports the following:

      Those 26 parts found belong to Thadjueen…..

      The CID team investigating the disappearance of body parts belonging to slain rugby player Wasim Thajudeen found twenty-six human body parts stored at SAITM, today.

      Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris granted the CID permission to enter the SAITM campus this morning, after it was reported the missing body parts were stored there.

      The CID told the Court at an earlier date that the body parts belonging to Wasim Thajudeen, which were missing from the Colombo Judicial Medical Office mortuary coolers had been removed from the premises on the instructions of the former Colombo Chief JMO Professor Ananda Samarasekara.

      The CID said the body parts had been moved in 15 parcels to the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM), of which Professor Ananda Samarasekara was also Vice Chancellor.

      After his involvement in the disappearances was alleged, Professor Ananda Samarasekara filed an anticipatory bail application before the Supreme Court, seeking to prevent his arrest relating to the missing body parts.

      He said he had retired from service in June 2012, and he was not involved in any activity with regard to the body parts thereafter.

      The CID however reported that the missing body parts were stored at the SAITM campus in Malabe, and requested the Court issue a warrant for search – which it did this morning.

      Former senior DIG Anura Senanayake and former Narahenpita Crimes OIC Sumith Perera are currently in custody for supressing evidence relating to the Thajudeen case.

      Former Chief JMO Ananda Samarasekara today filed a revision application in Colombo High Court over rejecting his anticipatory bail application filed in the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court, in the expectation of preventing him being arrested over the inquiry conducted into the missing body parts of the late Wasim Thajudeen. In the revision application, the applicant cited Attorney General and OIC of Homicide Division of Criminal Investigations Department as respondents. Earlier, the anticipatory bail application filed by the former JMO was rejected by the Colombo Additional Magistrate Dulani Amarasinghe. During the consideration of the anticipatory bail application, raising a preliminary objection, Deputy Solicitor General Dilan Ratnayake revealed in court that, according to statements recorded from witnesses, the former Chief JMO Ananda Samarasekara had dispatched the samples from the refrigerator a few days prior to his retirement. The DSG informed that the CID had had begun an investigation concerning the missing body parts under the Public Property Act — because the body parts had earlier been taken into the former JMO’s custody, as case productions and, therefore, they belonged to the State. An anticipatory bail application can be filed by an individual seeking bail in anticipation or in expectation of being named or arrested of having committed a non-bail-able offense. He had also earlier filed a Fundamental Rights petition in Supreme Court against the imminent infringement of his Fundamental Rights in relation to the ongoing investigation into the death ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen.

    Why the people with medical titles involve in the frauds ?

    This is no good for the mentioned doctors. They are not just new comers to medical world either.

    Where the Sinhalaya is moving to this date ?

    Now please media men – bring the doctors to FACE to FACE dialogues and let them explain as to why they the doctors kept the body parts away from the responsible labs ? What was behind all these ? Who were the commanders to do the job ?

    Today, we get to hear, former powerful defence secretary being allowed to move out of country, but to hear the kind high frauds also not respecting the dead as due – but calling them as SINHALA BUDDHISTs, …… all these are beyond understanding…

      I am suspicious, if there are such laboratories in the premises of Madamulana keeping the body parts of many perhaps we are not even known- but missings were reported.

      It is normal anyone with sanity to feel so, when looking at the manner they the Rajapakshes have handled these things within their circles. Longer we wait for truths, the torments that the victimized family and the folks go through are much.

      Thrisu, according to Daily news paper article of today; those belong to the slain sportler.

      See, even if the Ex JMO to have gone retirement by the time, this was occured, it was under his responsiblity. You as a researcher, what would you say, if anything from your lab woudl have been stolen by someone in your absence ?

      Please people, wake up, this is a great crime we all should RISE UP against this.

    The doctors of the land have covered themselves in Excreta. This is a disgrace for the entire profession in Srilanka.
    On one hand a Female Neurosurgeon certifies that a murderer had a bullet piercing through the skull, but recovered completely except for amnesia to shooting down his victim.
    Then two JMO’s hiding the obvious cause of death following a postmortem.
    There is this current case a politician Alavi Moulana going in to hospital for a minor day procedure and dying ten days later in an ICU.
    What is happening to our doctors?

    Leelawathie: You question why Medical People are involved in this type of work. Wait for a little more time. You,I and all others would be surprised when the details of “JUDGES” who received “Hampers” and “GIFTS” of Lands from the “KING”, MR, are discussed in Parliament. This emerges after questioning MR’s associates and even the “Drivers” by the FCID. But, cross your fingers, those “Invisible” hands are playing the “Ball Game”; and that is the very reason the PEOPLE have to keep a close watch and prevent such interference of any sorts. Those “invisible” hands in “High Positions” have lot of OBLIGATION and that is why a condition of “200% accuracy” was imposed in place of “Beyond Reasonable Doubt”.

      I am shocked by hearing the brutal levels of SINHALA BUDDHISTIC way of life has reached, lately- even any contract killers are ready to take the life of anyone today on contracts.

      NethFM even if they are proved to be part of buddhist nationalism of the active scenes in the country, they carry out a program called ” Balumgala” by which anyone who is interested in could pick up the information about teh ground realities of various areas of the current day lanken society.

    Snatching of the life of Wasim is bad enough. Now his body parts? Where is this going to end? Just taking away 26 body parts is not enough. Swiftly identify which of them belong to late Wasim. This investigation has been dragging for a long time. We should have had some culprits charged for the murder by now.

    Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka as Minister for Law and Order???. It will be the end of the road for many Politicians in Govt.and in the Parliament itself.
    Unsuspecting people who voted for them just to see that Justice would be meted out unfortunately have to eat the humble pie.If the Govt.is really sincere,
    by now it could have got all criminals before the law.There is every reason to believe It is playing safe.

      The problem is in a society every second is proxy corruption/high abuses, to have alternatives even if the few would want to go rigorously against any kind of high abuses. Be it in parliament, schools, temples, courts or anywhere, the kind of criminals have taken their ground for the ages. In 70ties and early 80ties the percentage of the kind of killers were not many.. today, even in former head of state s family kith and kin were filled with the abusive nature.

      Why cant they trace the phone lines and get the information of particular man from Panadura ?

      What is the stand for him by today ?

      These men and others must be cornered … police and other forces should get together to corner these men.

      Even detectives and CID can work even more strict, if the govt wants to go against all these men.

    The CID has enough circumstantial evidence in their investigations so far to arrest the former Colombo JMO Dr. Ananada Samarasekera.

    Especially his inital autopsy report that Wasim Thajudeen died in an automobile accident.

    Put him behind bars, which could probably jolt him back to his senses.

    He is a corrupt government official and it would be in everyone’s interest to dig up all the “Old Shit” that he has buried during his tenure as a Judicial Medical Officer. There ought to be many skeletons in his cupboard.

    He is nothing but a cheap boot licking B…..d.

    Thajudeen Murder: CID Confiscates 26 Body Parts From SAITM

    The story of these body parts kept in SAITM was highlighted weeks back in the media and in courts also.

    And this week they went to search in SAITM. Just curious to know, if the authorities are allowed to replace the body parts before they get in to do a physical search. Is it a pre planned activity for the authorities to replace the body parts. Now the question is, can these body parts found in SATIM can be proved that is of the murdered ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen. Another additional burden on top of another.

    God knows whats happening to our judiciary system.

      Very good…

      Not only Amnesty I but UNHRC should focus on this and the tempo of the investigations. Then only they can keep hopes on the lanken locally held crime investigations.

      Now I feel there is no unfairness asking anyone with brains to request lanken authorities to work with Foreign judges.

      For example, had we had the foreign judges hired for the Wasim s investigations

      a) The first question would raise would, be if the lawful bodies arrested ex JMO
      b) Why the senior officer in remand stays that long in the remand without leaving his information

      c) What information the local authorities already collected from ALLEGED murder men of the WASIM murder case- Yoshita Rajapakshes and the alleged men supported him the murder

      d) What have we achieved sofar in the line of Wasims murder investigations ?

    vanguard man, you seem to be thinking like a `choon paan van man`!I say, whether they are Thajudeen`s body parts or any one elses, that ex-JMO hippopotamus bugger had no authority to take them away from JMO Office to SAITM or SHAITAN. That is theft. These `horabadu` have been taken care of by the Proprietor of the SHAITAN so called Doctor Neville. For that crime alone,both these shameless doctor buggers should be prosecuted.
