More than 100 police officers were deployed to the Aberdare Forest to search for Mohamed Zaid Sami Kidwai, Zulfiqar Ahmad Khan and their driver, Nicodemus Mwania Mwange.

The officers took the evidence for safe custody ahead of a planned DNA sampling to establish whether they belong to the three. SSU officers linked to the disappearance and death of the three are expected to appear before the Internal Affairs Unit detectives who are handling the case.
