IPID urges witnesses to come forward after man dies in police custody

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) national spokesperson, Moses Dlamini, says the investigation into a case of a man who died in police custody at Rondebosch has started.

On Tuesday, CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke to Dr Amin Khan, brother of the deceased, who explained what happened to his brother, Nadeem.

We have taken some statements from different people but we haven't taken any statement from witnesses because no one has come forward...

Moses Dlamini, IPID national spokesperson

Dlamini urged witnesses to come forward. He says the cause of death still remains unknown but they are hoping to establish this in the coming week.

We understand that there were many people who witnessed and took videos of what happened.
