Former Senior DIG Anura Senanayake In Hot Water: CID Ordered To Investigate His Conduct In Thajudeen's Case

December 10, 2015

Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris today ordered the CID to probe former Senior DIG Anura Senanayake and the former Narahenpita OIC regarding their conduct over the murder of Wasim Thajudeen.

This order was given considering information given to the court by the lawyers of Thajudeen's family.

Accordingly, Anura Senanayake had summoned Thajudeen's father several days after the death and told him that it was an accident. There was nothing that can be done, Senanayke had told Thajudeen's father.

Meanwhile, the Narahenpita Police had issued a report, saying that the death occurred due to an accident.

However, it was recently established by a panel of judicial medical experts that Thajudeen's death was not an accident but an act of homicide.
