Zaharan Hashim One Of The Suicide Bombers At Shangri-la Hotel Colombo: DNA Tests Confirm

DNA tests have confirmed that National Thowheed Jamaath leader Zaharan Hashim was the suicide bomber who blew himself up at Shangri-la Hotel Colombo on April 24.

Two suicide bombers attacked Shangri-la Hotel, Colombo, and Hashim was one of them.

However, it was not clear at the initial stages whether Hashim was among the attackers who carried out the Easter Sunday explosions. It was against this backdrop that the Police sought permission from court to carry out DNA tests to ascertain the identity of Hashim who is considered to be the mastermind of Eastern Sunday explosions.

Court permitted the CID to obtain Zaharan Hashim's daughter and sister for the DNA tests.
