The Magisterial inquiry into the suspicious death of businessman Dinesh Shafter was postponed for March 22 by Colombo Chief Magistrate today.
The case was postponed for a further date due to the unavailability of the permanent Magistrate who inquired about the post-mortem inquiry today.
Consequently, Colombo Chief Magistrate Prasanna Alwis, before whom the case was called, postponed the case for March 22, 2023.
On the previous inquiry date Magistrate Rajindra Jayasooriya appointed a five-member expert committee of doctors in forensic Medicine field and in the medical field to probe and determine the cause or causes into the death of entrepreneur Dinesh Schaffer’s death on 15 December
The panel comprises Prof. Asela Mendis, Prof. D.C.R. Perera, Prof. D.N.P. Fernando, Dr. Siva Subramaniam and Dr. Rohan Ruwanpura were to examine and to decide the cause of Dinesh Shafter’s death and to submit a report to the court yesterday.
Magistrate Rajindra Jayasooriya made this order since there were contradictions in the post-mortem report submitted earlier to the court regarding the death of Dinesh Schaffter.
Dinesh Schaffter was found unconscious and tied inside his vehicle at the General Cemetery in Borella on 15 December 2022 evening and was rushed to the ICU of the National Hospital in Colombo. He was pronounced dead while undergoing treatment. (T.Farook Thajudeen)
