ICD seeks Boksburg murder witnesses
Johannesburg - People who saw the killing of a Boksburg man, allegedly by a police sergeant, should come forward, the Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD) said on Friday.
Rean Ramdin, 29, was shot and killed, allegedly by the policeman after being arrested for drug possession during a raid at Presley's nightclub in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, last Saturday.
ICD spokesperson Moses Dlamini urged witnesses to contact the Johannesburg branch at 011-220-1500.
Beeld newspaper reported on Monday that Ramdin was handcuffed when he was shot.
The policeman, identified by SABC radio news and Eyewitness news as Raymond le Roux, was granted R2 000 bail by the Boksburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
In court, Le Roux said Ramdin escaped from a police van, and that he fired nine warning shots.
The last bullet accidentally hit Ramdin in his chest.
