Taung - A police officer has opened a case of assault against three other officers at the Taung police station, North West police said on Monday.
“The matter is still under investigation,” Lieutenant Edward Sedupe said.
Constable Shepherd Malekanyo was allegedly assaulted by the three officers on Saturday morning.
Malekanyo, who is stationed at Ikageng, had reportedly accompanied a quarrelling couple to the station so they could lay charges against each other.
While at the station, Malekanyo - who was off-duty at the time - was allegedly assaulted by the three officers.
North West premier Thandi Modise called for the matter to be investigated.
“The conduct of the police officers, if indeed it is true, is despicable and warrants for drastic steps to be taken against those involved, as it tarnishes the image of the police,” Modise said in a statement.
“Police brutality is abhorred by the public and should be stamped out of the police service and those involved should be stripped of the dignified blue uniform.”
