The Colombo Additional Magistrate today ordered the Judicial Medical Officer (JMO) of Colombo to exhume the remains of former Sri Lankan Rugby player Wasim Thajudeen, who had died under suspicious circumstances.
The body will be exhumed on August 10, Ada Derana reporter said.
The Colombo Magistrate’s Court announce its decision today based on a request made by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).
The CID had informed court that an analysis was required with regard to Thajudeen’s fractured bones and therefore requested permission from the court to exhume his body.
Thajudeen was found dead on May 17, 2012 inside his car which had apparently crashed into a wall in Kirulapone.
An inquest into the death was launched following the recent emergence of new information in connection with the case.
The CID had recently declared that the mysterious death of Thajudeen was not an accidental one.
