Former Senior DIG Anura Senanayake and former Crimes OIC of the Narahenpita Police Sumith Perera who are in custody for concealing evidence over the murder of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen were ordered to be re-remanded till September 21 by Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Pieris.
The ongoing investigation has however suffered a setback after the British Columbia Society of Laboratory Science ruled that the CCTV footage of the killing is unclear hence they are unable to reach a conclusion over the murder.
In May, Senanayake was arrested by the CID following several days of questioning over the murder. The arrest was made after the Perera shared vital information to the CID over the cover up of Thajudeen’s killing. Thajudeen, the former Havelock SC captain, was killed in Colombo in May 2012 in what appeared to be an accident, but it was later ruled as a murder, with the accident staged.
