Exhumation of Lasantha’s body: Drone disconcerts Police

 

A drone hovering over the area in which the body of slain Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickremetunga is buried, caused Police consternation, this morning.

Given the sensitivity of the case, the media was barred from being present when the body was being exhumed, and reports say Police were disturbed when they spotted the drone over the area.

Police were ill equipped to capture the drone or trace its origin.

On September 8, Mount Lavinia Magistrate Mohamed Saafdeen approved the CID’s request to exhume Lasantha Wickremetunga’s body, after the CID informed court that another postmortem was necessary to aid forensic investigation.
