Four people have been arrested for allegedly killing a suspected burglar in Panorama Gardens, Pietermaritzburg, on Sunday morning, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

A 27-year-old man was found dead with multiple injuries in a drain after he was apparently caught trying to break into a house in the area, Colonel Jay Naicker said.

“We urge members of the public to report any criminal activity to police and allow justice to take its course.”

The four would appear in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court soon. – Sapa
