On 11 September 2018, detectives from Verulam together with Crime intelligence officers conducted an intelligence driven operation to track down suspects involved in a robbery and murder case. The team struck in various areas including Inanda, Ndwedwe and Cottonlands whilst tracing the suspects.

A total of five men were arrested by police officers. Stolen property including cellphones and a motor vehicle as well as various household items were seized from the arrested men. The suspects who are aged between 18 and 30, are expected to make their first appearance at the Verulam Magistrates Court on Friday, 14 September 2018.

These arrests stem from an incident that occurred on 3 September 2018 at 12:00 when police discovered the bodies of a man and woman inside a house at Cottonlands in Verulam. The victims were identified as Dhir Singh (68) and his wife Kay Singh (63).

Charges of robbery and murder are being investigated by Verulam SAPS.
