Traffic cops nabbed for murder

December 06 2007 at 07:31PM

Two Ekurhuleni traffic officers were arrested for murder following the death
of an unidentified man in Mpumalanga last month, police said on Thursday.

Ekurhuleni metro police spokesperson Inspector Mveli Nhlapo said the two
traffic officers - a female and a male - were arrested on Tuesday and
Wednesday respectively following a police investigation into the abduction
of a Springs man who was found dead in a house in Mpumalanga.

It is believed that two traffic officers and four other people took the man
from his Springs home and drove to a house in Mpumalanga where they
allegedly tortured him and demanded that he give them money.

The man died a few hours after the six left the house.

The traffic officials were arrested after residents of the house where the
man was murdered gave police the registration number of the vehicle they
were driving.

"The registration number turned out to be an Ekurhuleni metro police
vehicle," said Nhlapo. - Sapa
