The body of Wasim Thajudeen, has been exhumed a short while ago at Dehiwala, Police said. The remains have been placed under the custody of the Judicial Medical Officer.

The Colombo Additional Magistrate had earlier ordered the JMO of the Colombo National Hospital to exhume the remains of Thajudeen, who had died under suspicious circumstances. 

The Colombo Magistrate’s Court had announced its decision based on a request made by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID).

The CID had informed court that an analysis was required with regard to Thajudeen’s fractured bones and therefore requested permission from the court to exhume his body. 

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