Analysis Of CCTV Footage Of Thajudeen's Vehicle Inconclusive: Sri Lankan Experts Recommend FBI Assistance

The University of Colombo School of Computing experts who analysed the CCTV footage pertaining to the murdered former rugby player Wasim Thajudeen's vehicle filed their report with Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris today.

The experts said that they were handed over recordings of CCTV footage from cameras in Narahenpita and Kirulapone on the night Thajudeen was murdered.

Although a vehicle similar to Thajudeen's could be seen in the footage, they were unable to identify the human figures or the license plate of the vehicle, the UCSC said. The lights of the vehicle and the camera angle made it difficult to figure out the details, the report further pointed out.

Therefore, the UCSC recommended that the CCTV footage should be sent for expert forensic analysis in a forensic laboratory such as the FBI Laboratory Service in the USA, the British Columbia Institute of Technology in Canada or the Metropolitan Police Service in the UK.
