Former First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa had contacted Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe over the phone on a matter concerning investigations into Wasim Thajudeen's death.
 
Responding to the former First Lady's request, the Prime Minister had said he was not in a position to interfere with investigations into the Rugby player's mysterious death.
 
The CID investigate whether a jeep belonging to Siriliya Saviya Foundation was used to abduct Thajudeen before his death. The vehicle had been presented to the foundation by an international non-governmental organisation operating in Colombo. 
 
Siriliya Saviya Foundation was headed by former First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa.  The CID had received information that a secret discussion on Thajudeen had taken place among some senior officers of the PSD prior to the incident. 
 
A senior official from the organization had already been questioned by the CID in connection with the incident. 
 
Meanwhile, sources close to Thajudeen's family said the Prime Minister had assured the Rugby player's family that he would continue with investigations irrespective of political pressure.
