4 cops arrested for murder

2010-04-08 21:02
Johannesburg - Four policemen from the Roodepoort police station were on Thursday arrested for allegedly killing a man in custody, the Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD) said.

Sibusiso Molefe, 27, was arrested by the four on April 3 for armed robbery and was allegedly assaulted by them, said ICD spokesperson Moses Dlamini.

Molefe died on route to hospital.

The policemen, a warrant officer and three constables, are due to appear in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Friday.

The ICD is investigating a case of murder.

The Sowetan on Wednesday reported that Molefe had a 2-year-old son.

Quoting his father, Jerry Zulu, it said the policemen arrived at the family's home to arrest Molefe in connection with an incident in which a woman was shot.

He was not there at the time and they reportedly told the family that when they found him, they would kill him.
