Three of the seven Deelpan village residents who appeared on public violence charges at the Itsoseng magistrates' court in North West were released on R500 bail each yesterday.

The other four, all minors, were released into the custody of their parents.

The seven were arrested on Tuesday after they stoned vehicles and blockaded the road between Mareetsane and Sannieshof.

The accused will appear in court on July 9.
