The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) has confirmed that it’s probing allegations that an officer investigating the sexual assault of two Soweto Primary school learners also violated them.

The officer was part of a team investigating last year’s sexual assault of more than 50 learners at the school, allegedly by a school patroller.

The officer has been withdrawn from the case with immediate effect, but not arrested.

IPID spokesperson Moses Dhlamini refused to divulge more information regarding the case, only saying an investigation is underway.
