Montford dad dies after being brutally assaulted by cops in front of his daughter(6)

Durban – Last Tuesday, a six-year-old Montford girl watched in horror as her father was allegedly brutally assaulted while handcuffed in his home by police officers.

On Wednesday, the little girl had to relive the horror after she was told that her dad has passed away.

The family of 32-year-old Regan Naidoo have lodged a complaint with the Independent Police Investigative Directorate as they believe that police brutality led to the death of their loved one.

According to Naidoo’s family, they were told by police that he was hungry and they bought him a pie, which he choked on and later died at the RK Khan Hospital.

An independent post-mortem was conducted by the family and they are awaiting results.

Speaking to journalists, Naidoo’s distraught wife, who is six months pregnant said, “Regan was a humble and kind person and he was loving father to our six-year-old daughter. My family and I hope and pray that justice is served because he did not deserve to die in such a cruel and unfair manner.”

Naidoo worked as an alarm technician and was the sole bread winner of his family.

Close relatives are appealing to IPID to speed up the investigation as the family needs closure. Naidoo was laid to rest, last Thursday.

National spokesman of IPID, Moses Dlamini confirmed that the incident is being investigated.

“The police alleged that the deceased died on the way to hospital, however, witnesses claimed that the deceased was assaulted. An investigation is currently underway. No arrests have been made,” he added.

Police minister, Bheki Cele, contacted Naidoo’s family after he was informed of the incident.

Teddy mafia son in law

Kesavan Isaac Naidoo, the son-in-law of slain alleged Durban drug boss “Teddy Mafia” has survived a brazen attempted assassination on Wednesday, his family confirmed.

The incident took place at about 10am in Shallcross, south of Durban.

Naidoo, 41, is the son-in-law of Yaganathan Pillay – also known as Teddy Mafia.

He was shot twice in a daylight hit on Table Mountain Drive. The incident was captured on CCTV.

“Isaac was shot in both legs and his driver was shot in the hand. Both of them survived. They’re in hospital,” he said.

Pillay said Naidoo was in the back seat while his wife was in the front. The shooting, seen in the footage, takes place moments after they open the doors of their vehicle to get out.

In the footage, a white vehicle can be seen driving along Table Mountain Drive before it is stopped, partially blocking the left hand side of the road. Thirteen seconds later, Naidoo’s vehicle, a white Toyota Fortuna, pulls up.

The back passenger door of the Fortuner is opened, but it is not clear from the footage who the person was who opened it or if they got out of the vehicle.

Naidoo’s wife is seen getting out of the front passenger side of the vehicle and walks towards the rear of the SUV.

Suddenly, four men alight from the stationary vehicle, three of them drawing firearms and running towards the Fortuner, firing multiple shots. The fourth man stands next to the white car.

As the bullets are fired, Naidoo’s driver accelerates and drives past the other vehicle. Naidoo is presumably in the vehicle as it speeds away, but this could not immediately be confirmed.

Pillay said Naidoo was doing “OK”.

Police have been approached for comment, and this story will be updated.
