This was revealed in court today by the Criminal Investigations Department when the case into the murder was heard.
Earlier the Attorney General (AG) had filed a case against the former Judicial Medical Officer (JMO) of Colombo over the Wasim Thajudeen murder case.
The case was filed over body parts which went missing after the initial post-mortem was conducted by Samarasekera on Thajudeen’s remains soon after his death.
Thajudeen died on May 17, 2012 in Kirulapone and his body was found in his car which had crashed into a wall.
According to police reports in 2012, the rugby player was driving home after attending a party when he lost control of the car and crashed into a wall on Park Road.
The police claimed that the car had exploded instantly and burnt the victim.
However suspicions later arose over the manner in which he died and it was believed that he was murdered. (Colombo Gazette)
