Dwarika was allegedly abducted last week from his home in Sea Cow Lake in Durban.  The incident was captured on CCTV footage, showing three men forcing him into his own vehicle before fleeing in his car.

At the weekend, police found Dawarika’s body in Inanda, north of Durban.

Our investigations revealed that he was kidnapped, so in that case on kidnapping and carjacking, we arrested two suspects. Further investigation pointed out to bushes in Inanda where his body was recovered. He had injuries on his neck.”
