SEVEN alleged cocaine dealers appeared briefly in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court Monday in connection with last Friday’s drugs raid in the city.

They are; Hoosen Haniff, Santhan Manthiri, Gonasagren Govender, Yogasen Pillay, Devendra Naidoo, Jayshree Naicker and Avikar Lutchman.

Each of them face multiple charges of dealing in cocaine.

The state alleges that the drugs were sold to undercover police agents over a period of time.

All of them were detained in custody pending a formal bail application next Monday.

The court was told some of the accused have previous convictions for dealing in cocaine.
