Durban - The Independent Police Investigative Directorate has wrapped up its investigation into the events that unfolded outside the Chatsworth police station when police used stun grenades to disperse residents.
In May this year, hundreds of residents marched to the police station demanding for increased police patrols following the death of Sadia Sukhraj. She was shot in an apparent botched hijacking earlier in the day on May 28, just a few metres away from her grandparents’ home.
The girl’s death sparked outrage in the community with residents marching to the police station.
It is alleged that police responded using stun grenades and tear gas to disperse the crowd.
An Imbizo was held between residents and Minister of police, Bheki Cele.
