The body of former military intelligence officer Ilandarige Edirisinghe Jayamanne who allegedly committed suicide was exhumed on Wednesday. He allegedly committed suicide after leaving behind a note claiming responsibility for the assassination of late journalist Lasantha Wickrematunge.

Former military intelligence officer Ilandarige Edirisinghe Jayamanne was laid to rest  at the Puwakdeniya Public Cemetery in Kegalle on October 16.

His body was found hanging at his residence in Karadupana, Kegalle and the Judicial Examiner ruled that the death was a suicide.

However, the body was exhumed to investigate into another possible evidence including fingerprints. The body was moved to the Kegalle Hospital for further investigations.
