The Criminal Investigations Department informed court on Monday that the death of Rugby Player Wasim Thajudeen in 2012 is suspected to be a murder.

Wasim Thajudeen’s charred remains were discovered inside a car, which had reportedly crashed into a wall near the Shalika Grounds in Narahenpita on May 27, 2012. The CID noted at the Colombo Magistrate’s Court on Monday that since there were disparities in the reports of the Judicial Medical Officer and the post-mortem examination, the responsible officials were questioned and information had come to light that foul play may have been involved in Thajudeen’s death.

The CID requested court on Monday to issue summons on the relevant medical officers. The CID also requested court to call for the JMO’s report. The Colombo Magistrate’s Court announced that the matter would be taken up on Tuesday.
