Police Commissioner Major General Antony Anderson
A decision has been made for Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) to take charge of the probe into the alleged trimming of Rastafarian woman, Nzinga King, while she was in police custody.
Miss King says her locks were cut while she was being held at Four Paths Police Station in Clarendon on July 22.
Police Commissioner Major General Antony Anderson told a media briefing on Wednesday that INDECOM requested that it lead the probe.
"I think it's a better way of approaching this matter. I think this is one of those matters that definitely needs an independent look, independent of us. So we await, with some anticipation...the outcome of that," said General Anderson.
