Johannesburg - Three men were identified as members of the "Diepsloot Terror Gang" during a police line-up in Pretoria at the weekend, Gauteng police said on Sunday.

Warrant Officer Daniel Mavimbela said the men were tracked and arrested by Diepsloot police in Hillbrow last month.

Three other alleged members of the gang were arrested last year and were later denied bail.

The gang allegedly murdered two people and wounded two others at a Diepsloot tavern on June 16 2011. An off-duty police constable at the tavern shot and killed one of the gang members.

The three will appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Wednesday for their bail application, Mavimbela said.

    I am so glad to hear that these thugs were denied bail - obviously they posed a great threat of evading the justice system to take its course! I am glad to see that justice will be served here eventually - I can smell success in the air, please just don't allow these BA star..s to get off free on a technicality, please!!!
