The body of a cadet, who was said to have committed suicide in 2015, was exhumed on Monday morning on the order of Bandarawela magistrate Ruwan Gunasekara.

The officer was from the Diyatalawa army camp. Although his death was deemed a suicide at the time, his family complained to the CID  that his death had occurred under suspicious circumstances. The order to exhume the body was given by the Bandarawela magistrate on March 9.

Reports say that the body will be referred for tests, under the supervision of Colombo Chief Judicial Medical Officer, Dr. Ajith Tennakoon.
