Spokesperson, Moses Dlamini says the officers were allegedly interrogating three suspects, accused of murder, at the Muden police cell on August 2.

"It has been alleged that the three suspects were detained, tortured and assaulted inside the Muden SAPS cells until one of the suspects succumbed to his injuries and died."

Dlamini says the police did not report the incident.

"They then orchestrated a plan to dispose of the deceased's body by dumping it in the nearby bushes," Dlamini said.

The trio is due in the Greytown Magistrate's Court tomorrow.
