A group of 800 pupils have marched on a Durban police station to demand the release of some of their schoolmates who had been arrested and charged with involvement in a vigilante killing last month.

Major Thulani Zwane said the pupils were complaining that the arrested suspects, aged between 18 and 20 years, would miss their exams this month.

It is alleged that last month three suspects went into the school and robbed learners of their belongings.  

Zwane added that the learners started to assault the three suspects as a result, they were taken to a local clinic with severe injuries and one of the suspect died instantly.     

He further said that the five suspects were arrested on 11 June 2015 by the detectives for their alleged involvement in assaulting three men who were committing a crime at the school.

A case of murder as well as attempted murder was opened at the Inanda police station for further investigations.
