The death of Rugger Player Wasim Thajudeen has been a topic of much controversy in the recent past.

The charred remains of Wasim Thajudeen who was awarded as the Most Popular Ruggerite in the year 2009, were discovered inside his car in Narahenpita three years ago.

The body was exhumed in 2015 after the new government was appointed, to conduct further judicial medical examinations.

Several months later the Colombo Additional Magistrate ruled that it was clear that the death of Wasim Thajudeen was not caused by an accident.

It was later revealed that CCTV footage related to the incident had been recovered and that further investigations were underway into this lead.

The matter is still before court.

Convener – Collective of Citizens Organisations, Saman Rathnapriya says that law should be equal to everyone and should not be implemented on the high class people and the politicians in one way, and on the ordinary man in another way.

He also notes that in the past, certain people who were accused for engaging in fraudulent activities were not taken before the law due to mercy and sympathy, adding that the same should not happen in this case.
