Warrant issued against former JMO Ananda Samarasekara

A warrant has been issued against former Judicial Medical Officer (JMO) Ananda Samarasekara over the Wasim Thajudeen murder case.

The Colombo Additional Magistrate issued the warrant against Samarasekara for failing to appear in court over the murder case.

In August Indictments were served on Samarasekara at the Colombo High Court in the case.

The Attorney General had filed indictments on Samarasekara at the Colombo High Court.

Samarasekara has been accused of removing and concealing evidence related to the murder of the rugby player.

The former JMO had been found to have destroyed and concealed vital evidence in the murder of Wasim Thajudeen.

Thajudeen was found dead on May 17 in 2012 inside his car which had crashed into a wall in Kirulapone.

Initially the Police said he was killed in an accident but later it was found he had been killed.

In June this year former Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Anura Senanayake was also served indictments over allegations he concealed evidence in the murder of rugby player Wasim Thajudeen. (Colombo Gazette)
