Female robbery gang terrorising Durban

2012-08-08 09:10

Durban - A Durban woman has told how she was robbed by a female gang dressed in Muslim attire and with a small child.

The Daily News reported that the gang held up victims while pushing a child through locked security gates to have a look through the house of the victims.

Nazera Kathrada from Verulam told how she was “touched” at first when she saw the three women in full Muslim outfits, begging with a child who looked about 6-years-old.

She gave them money but as she handed it over, her hand was grabbed and she was pulled against the security gate.

The child was then pushed through the gate into the house where she returned with the key to the gate.

“It was almost like she knew exactly what she was doing, and that was really worrying for me,” said Kathrada.  

Kathrada was assaulted by one of the women who hit her in the face before she was locked in the bathroom with her 4-year-old son, while her other son activated the alarm and called his father.
The gang ran off with a decoder, computer and cash.

Police were investigating.

    Typical. Hiding behind the cloth. Makes a mockery of religion.

      They might not even be muslim. It's fasting time now and I do not think that a true muslim would do this.

    The motive was starvation - remember it is the month of Ramadan.

      Hi dr Phil (jowza1). Welcome in the land of milk and honey. Afraid to reveal your true identity?

      jowza1 - 2012-08-08 11:02

      erich.goosen - 2012-08-08 11:11

      The mess in which our legal system was only created after I left the profession, mr Babha. Persons like Shabir Shaik largely contributed to the present state of affairs by faking his health and misused the legal system.

    I know many Indian people and they are decent.. maybe this lady that was robbed should close her eyes and try and recall the part of the shape of the eyes and nose.. she may get an ID of her day-worker's profile or that of zuma's supporters in KZN??

    Preshen, in spite of your offensive comment, I have seen you trolling Women24's articles. Seems to me you have a problem and need some serious help.

  • lionel.defrontignac - 2012-08-08 14:26

    As far as I know, in SA you don't get Muslims begging; the poor are helped out by various Islamic charities, and do not need to beg. Those types dressed in Islamic attire at traffic intersections are fake.

  • allison.steedman - 2012-08-08 14:43

    Just wondereing.... how does one incident that took place in Verulam turn into Durban being terrorised by this "gang"???

  • sedeshan - 2012-08-08 17:50
