Lansdowne police have rejected claims that suspects have been arrested in connection to the murder of local businessman Khalied Parker. The 40-year-old was fatally shot in the head by armed suspects, during an attempted kidnapping in Imam Haron road last Friday.
Pictures depicting a few tattooed men- presumed to be gang members- are being forwarded on social media, alongside a text claiming that the murder was a ‘private job’ carried out by ‘three different gangs’ for a ‘Pakistani group’.
According to police, this is fake news. No arrests have been made and the suspects are still being sought. Community leaders have meanwhile sounded the alarm on a kidnapping and extortion syndicate targeting Cape Town businessmen.
