Family of a man who died in custody suspect police brutality

Police Watchdog, IPID is investigating the death of a man who died at Rondebosch police station.

According to reports, Nadeem Khan (37) was arrested in the area on suspicion of trying to sell a stolen cellphone over the weekend, a claim his family vehemently denies.

Dr Amin Khan, brother of the deceased says the phone belonged to Nadeem and was fully paid for.

Nadeem spoke to my mom while in the parking lot and told her he lost his keys... while talking to my mom, two police officers approached him. She heard him tell police officers 'don't grab my phone, it is my phone I paid for it.' And my mom said take the names of the officers and let me tell them that it is your phone. At that time the phone went off...

Nadeem's parents rushed to the police station and after an hour of waiting a trauma counselor told them that their son had passed away.

The counselor relayed the news to me as well and i actually pinched myself to see if this was real.

A post-mortem has been conducted but the cause of death remains unknown, says Khan. He says Nadeem's face had bruises and his eyes were swollen and as a family they can't rule any form of brutality out.
