2010-08-04 13:29

KwaZulu-Natal police have exhumed the body of a man at KwaMakhutha cemetery today, following allegations that he was killed and it was never reported to police.

“The man was buried in December last year,” said Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge, at the scene while the body was being exhumed.

“A family member reported to police that the man was allegedly assaulted during a family fight in December and it was never reported.”

It was alleged that a private mortuary collected the body and the man was buried.

“Police applied for a warrant to exhume the body to conduct an investigation and it was granted by the court,” said Mdunge.
More details were to be made available later.
