Constable Sikade, who was stationed at Grassy Park Detective Unit, was inside his official vehicle en route to work when he was ambushed by the suspects who shot him dead before fleeing the scene with his service pistol.

The suspects will appear before the Mitchells Plain Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, facing charges of murder.
