The application seeking anticipatory bail filed by the vice-chancellor of SAITM Ananda Samarasekera stating he would be arrested by the CID in connection with the disappearance of skeletal parts of Rugger player Wasim Thajudeen’s body was rejected by Colombo Additional Magistrate Mrs.Dulani Amarasinghe.
The application for anticipatory bail was filed on 23rd August by Ananda Samarasekera who functions as the vice chancellor of Malabe private medical school and was the chief JMO in Colombo when Thajudeen was murdered.
Mr. Ananda Samarasekera performed the first post-mortem examination on Thajudeen’s body and presented a report to confirm the death was due to an accident. However, later it was confirmed that Thajudeen had been murdered.
In an earlier hearing the counsel representing the Attorney General told court that legal action would be taken under Public Property Act against the former Judicial Medical Officer Prof. Ananda Samarasekera who is charged with misplacing skeletal remains of Wasim Thajudeen stating that Prof. Samarasekera was responsible for taking the skeletal remains in a lorry.
