Woodstock police are investigating an incident in which graves were vandalised at the Mowbray Muslim Cemetery in Observatory.
There have been no arrests yet.
Col Dumezweni Ntsezo, Woodstock police station commander, says suspects will be charged for tampering with and damaging graves. Some members of the community suspect it to have been satanism, he says.
About 80 graves were found by a caretaker on Thursday 31 October to be badly damaged.
According to Tauriq Jenkins, chair of the Observatory Civic Association, the caretaker was doing his usual inspection when he was upset by what he saw.
He immediately contacted key stakeholders including the civic and the Muslim Judicial Council.
According to Jenkins, a case was immediately opened with the police.
