Randburg - Two police constables accused of corruption appeared in the Randburg Magistrate's Court, in Johannesburg, on Thursday.

Constables Linda Mlambo and Mahlang Shaku were released on bail of R3000 each, said Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini.

The matter was postponed to February 20 for further investigation.

On January 6, they pulled over a motorist and accused him of being in possession of drugs.

They allegedly took his driver's licence and forced him to withdraw R1000 from an ATM at the Sunninghill Village shopping centre to have it returned.

The two police officers, who were based at the Sandton police station, would be suspended, Dlamini said. - Sapa
