Motor mechanic Boy Mahlangu died at a local clinic after sustaining severe injuries to his head in a police van.

He was allegedly pulled over by the four warrant officers and accused of driving an unroadworthy vehicle before he was assaulted.

IPID national spokesman Moses Dlamini says, "We think there's a strong case against the police officers, that's why we made a decision to arrest them and take them to court."
