Police are working on reconstructing an attempted murder docket against Matome Dikgale after it went missing on Friday at the Palm Ridge magistrate’s court, a day after he was denied bail.
The docket was allegedly stolen from a prosecutor’s office on Thursday. Dikgale was arrested on September 27 after he allegedly sneaked into his wife’s apartment and choked her in front their two children and a maid. Brig Mathapelo Peters confirmed that the case was reported and opened at Eden Park police station after the docket went missing.
“A case of theft of a docket has been opened and [an] investigation is underway,” said Peters.
“The reconstruction of the docket is a priority and has already commenced and should be concluded fairly and swiftly, pending the full cooperation of all parties concerned.”
Peters also said that the reconstruction process of a docket is an internal operational matter which the police cannot elaborate on.
