The Courier understands claims that some of the officers involved in detaining Kirkcaldy man Sheku Bayoh have resigned are unfounded.
The 31-year-old father-of-two collapsed after being detained by police on May 3. His family fears he may have been the victim of positional asphyxiation after he was restrained by several officers using batons and CS spray.
Rumours have been circulating that a number of police present when he died had handed in their resignations.
Police Scotland said it would not confirm or deny the claims while the incident is still under investigation by PIRC.
However, The Courier understands no officers have resigned.
The Bayoh family solicitor Aamer Anwar has previously said none of the officers should be allowed to leave the force until the conclusion of the inquiry.
