Wife of Zahran Hashim, the ringleader of Easter Sunday terror attacks, will be recording a statement with the Presidential Commission of Inquiry today (22).

She accordingly arrived at the Commission’s office at the BMICH premises a short while ago.


Five days into the coordinated bomb blasts on the 21st of April 2019, extremist militants had opened fire and set off explosives at Sainthamaruthu in Kalmunai as the security forces closed in to raid their safe house.

A total of 15 bodies including six men, three women and six children were recovered from the site.

The father and brother of the Zahran Hashim were among the dead while his wife Abdul Cader Fatima Saadiah and then four-year-old daughter sustained minor injuries in the explosion.

National Thowheed Jamaath (NTJ) leader’s wife was later subjected to extensive interrogation and she had also recorded a confidential statement before the Colombo Fort Magistrate.

Her brother was placed under arrest by the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) for allegedly receiving weapon training at Nuwara Eliya camp along with Zahran Hashim.
