Sydenham calls for more police after suspected drug lord ravi chetty is killed in a hit

Durban – Sydenham residents have called on for more police deployments in their area to curb drug dealing and the violence that it comes with.

This follows the assassination of a well-known drug lord, whose name is known to DurbanSun, on Thursday afternoon in a suspected drug hit.

KwaZulu-Natal police admit there’s a drug problem in the Sydenham area.

The man was shot dead outside the Lenmed Shifa Private Hospital.

Police have warned the public against the distribution of inflammatory social media messages about the man’s death.

SAPS confirmed voice notes circulating with the sounds of gunfire and threats of retaliation are fake.

Over 300 people have been arrested for drug dealing in just six months and there are fears of more violence after Thursday’s murder.

The man was shot while seated inside a white Mercedes SUV in Randles Road shortly before midday on Thursday.

Another person sustained gunshot wounds, but survived.

Sources say the incident is drug related, the area being rife with rival gangs.
