A top ranking official of the Army told Ceylon Today that Captain L.M.T. Wimalasena, alias Captain Tissa, was summoned twice by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) for questioning in connection with the murder of popular ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen.

He said the Army was awaiting information from the CID in order to commence a Military Investigation into Captain Tissa’s alleged connections to the murder.

The source added that since the CID is carrying out an investigation into the connection Captain Tissa had with the murder of Wasim Thajudeen, the Army cannot get involved in it simultaneously.

However, he also said that the Army has geared itself to provide all available information regarding Captain Tissa to the CID.
He confirmed Captain Tissa was still under detention at an Army Camp in Jaffna
