Video footage of police dragging a Mozambican taxi driver behind a police van for a parking violation in Daveyton, South Africa has gone viral, prompting a public outcry.

The taxi driver died in the police cell on Tuesday, the day of the incident.

The case is being investigated by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) – the police watchdog body – while the officers who allegedly committed the crime are still on duty.

“We have seen the video footage and we have obtained statements and have changed our inquest to murder,” Ipid spokesman Moses Dlamini said on Thursday.

Police spokesman Captain Alfred Makana named the taxi driver as Joseph Mido Macua.
