Speaking at an event to mark the death anniversary of her father Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra today, Hirunika Premachandra said the the Criminal Investigations Department has been asked to investigate those who indirectly assisted the crime.
She said that a doctor who had reportedly given medical treatment to Silva following the incident is also to be investigated.
Hirunika Premachandra said that The Sunday Leader newspaper had reported on the doctor and the medical assistance he gave Silva after the incident and those details will likely be used for the investigation.
Former Parliamentarian Duminda Silva was last month sentenced to death in the Bharatha Lakshman murder case. Silva has filed an appeal against the ruling.
Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra, a former Presidential advisor, and his bodyguards were murdered in October 2011 ahead of elections held at the time.
Duminda Silva was also injured in the incident and he sought treatment but he was later accused of being involved in the killing. (Colombo Gazette)
