Coimbatore (News 1st); Indian Crime Branch-CID police and forensic science experts have said DNA can be extracted from the samples taken from the dead body of a man who was said to be Sri Lankan underworld don Maddumage Chandana Lasantha Perera alias Angoda Lokka, said the Times Of India.

CB-CID inspector general of police K Shankar has said that many details are available about Angoda Lokka in the public domain. “We are also investigating to find out whether the deceased man is Angoda Lokka or not,” said Shankar on Tuesday, reported the Times Of India.

It also reported, Forensic medicine doctors in the Coimbatore Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) took viscera from the dead body of Angoda Lokka.

“Small intestine, stomach, liver, and kidney were taken from the dead body. They were sent to the regional forensic science laboratory in Coimbatore. The experts can detect whether he was poisoned or not,” said an expert from the forensic science department, according to the Times Of India.

“We can get DNA from the samples taken from the body of the man. So, we can prove the DNA match after taking blood samples from Lokka’s kin. The CB-CID police can prove the death of Angoda Lokka through DNA match.

The samples will be sent to the main forensic science laboratory in Chennai where DNA can be analyzed,” he said.

As of now, the CB-CID police are waiting for the toxicology experts’ report. Toxicology experts analyze poisonous substances like pesticides, insecticides, and metallic poisonous substances.

“We are also waiting for a report from the histopathology department. The experts from the histopathology will study the heart and they can identify whether he died of a cardiac arrest or not,” said a CB-CID source, according to the Times of India.
