They were still on active duty when they were released on bail at the beginning of August and one of them was ordered to periodically report to Inanda police station, where he worked. The others were issued stations closer to their homes.
With them in the dock were three businessmen, father and son Moham Bhugwandeen, 71, and Hemal Bhugwandeen, 33; and Mark Pillay, 27, whose bail conditions magistrate Vanitha Armu cancelled.
She also ordered the investigating officer to return the Bhugwandeens’ passports so that they could travel over the festive season and on business.
The case was postponed to January 22.
