Thajudeen’s body parts sent to SAITM by ex-JMO

wasimSome body parts of murdered rugger player Wasim Thajudeen had been sent to the SAITM medical college in Malabe by the former Judicial Medical Officer (JMO) Ananda Samarasekara.

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)


  1. Thajudeen’s body parts are not at SAITM. Instead of making false allegations the CID must do what is called a DNA tests at SAITM of the so called “his bones “and find out the truth.While the culprits are at large, those who are not ,are targetted.This is a wildgoose chase.They must get on the correct tract and catch the murderers

  2. Hype in media Oct. 5th for GMOA to enter court case to try to prove further lies and destroy SAITM. What if he even looked after body parts of his legal cases as they are needed long afterwards too and he is responsible. Many medics have private bone collections for study. Medical schools need them absolutely. Instead of lies and malicious lingo, GMOA and SLMC should bring justice in this murder if they want to do right. Morality is not their forte They think no hereafter. CID is misled
