Former Senior DIG Anura Senanayake, who is in remand for concealing evidence in a murder case, has filed a bail application at the Colombo High Court, seeking his release.
Last week the Colombo Magistrate denied his bail request and instructed him to forward his bail application to the Colombo High Court. Senanayake, along with former Crimes OIC of Narahenpita Police, Sumith Perera was arrested by the CID for concealing evidence over the murder of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen. He is currently in remand custody till July 20.
In the bail application, Senanayake’s lawyers have cited Attorney General and the head of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) as respondents.
