On May 27, 2012 the charred remains of Wasim Thajudeen were discovered inside a car which had reportedly crashed into a wall near the Shalika Grounds in Narahenpita. Later a wallet, suspected to belong to Thajudeen, was found in close proximity to the alleged crash site.
The CID noted at the Colombo Magistrate’s Court on July 27, 2015 that since there were disparities in the reports of the judicial medical officer and the post-mortem examination, the responsible officials were questioned. Information had come to light that foul play may have been involved in Thajudeen’s death. The CID also made a request to exhume the body in order to carry out further investigations.
Following the request made by the CID, Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Peiris ordered on August 6 that the body of national rugby player, Wasim Thajudeen be exhumed in the presence of the panel of the JMO, clerics and the Grama Niladhari Officer and also ruled that police protection be provided to the body.
