Five men made their appearance in the Verulam Magistrates’ Court. They are accused of murdering Seelan Pillay, a Navy officer.
They were denied bail on Tuesday. Magistrate Dube stated it was not in the interest of justice to let the accused be released.
Pillay was murdered by the suspects last month. They beat up the officer and set him alight. He died several days after the incident.
The next hearing is scheduled for July 17.
