Colombo (News 1st); It is impossible to claim if Sarah Jasmine (Pulasthini Rajendran) had died from the explosions in the east in 2019, said Public Security Minister Rear Admiral (Retd) Dr. Sarath Weerasekara.
He said the first DNA test had not confirmed her death nor her survival.
The minister was speaking at the briefing organized by the President-appointed six-member Committee to study in-depth the facts and recommendations on the course of action contained in the final report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) into 2019 April 21st Attacks and the report of the Sectoral Oversight Committee on National Security which was submitted to Parliament.
“The first DNA tests did not match with her mother. The remains will be exhumed for DNA tests to be carried out, as the bodies are in pieces,” said the Minister.
The Minister said if it is proven that Sarah Jasmine is not dead, a RED NOTICE will be issued via INTERPOL for her arrest.
Further, the Minister said there is no evidence to claim that a Police Officer had assisted Sarah Jasmine to escape Sri Lanka.
“54 people connected these attacks were arrested overseas and 50 of them were deported to Sri Lanka,” said the Minister.
