Police have noted with concern a video clip showing police officials manhandling a woman.
It was alleged on twitter that the incident took place at the Evaton police station near Johannesburg on Saturday.
The SAPS Provincial Commissioner has since released a statement condemning the act and has sanctioned an urgent departmental investigation. The officers in the video have been identified but the identity of the victim is unknown as well as the circumstances around the incident. The commissioner has also reemphasised a zero-tolerance approach, by SAPS, towards gender-based violence.
