Eyewitness close to Babita holds the key as cops hunt masterminds
The woman, now in a safe house, was getting into health department whistle-blower’s car when gunmen struck
A key witness to the assassination of Gauteng health department official Babita Deokaran, who was gunned down outside her Johannesburg south home, has been placed in a safe house.
Speaking outside the Johannesburg magistrate’s court on Monday, moments after the appearance of six men who were arrested for last week Monday’s murder of 53-year-old Deokaran, Gauteng Hawks spokesperson capt Ndivhuwo Mulamu said they had secured the safety of a witness to the killing.
“She is safe. She was not injured in the attack. She was at the car when the alleged gunmen opened fire on the deceased.”..
