A video of Western Cape traffic officials allegedly "manhandling" 51-year-old Zainodien Allie has gone viral.

The footage shows officers handcuffing Allie and throwing him on the ground at a petrol station in Cape Town.

Allie's daughter Bashiera Allie posted the video on Facebook, and asked the public to share it.

According to Allie, the officers unlawfully arrested him without reading him his rights.

But Mayoral Committee Member For Safety And Security JP Smith said they received a different version of events from the officers and have launched an investigation into the incident.
