Anura SenanayakeFormer Western Province DIG Anura Senanayake was further remanded today in connection to the case over the murder of former rugger player Wasim Thajudeen.

Senanayake was further remanded till June 23 when he was presented before court today.

The Colombo Additional Magistrate in February ordered the CID to arrest the suspects linked to Thajudeen’s murder.

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)


  1. I have known this man for over 30 years and know him up through the years to be an honest and duty conscious cop. Never failed to help when he could but not by breaking the law.
