Brit-Indian bride was upset on her honeymoon flight to Cape Town, father claimsNovember 28th, 2010 - 2:29 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov 28 (ANI): The father of the Brit-Indian bride, who was murdered during her honeymoon in Cape Town this month, has claimed that Anni Dewani was crying and had refused to sit next to her husband on their honeymoon flight.
“We have heard that the air hostess noticed they were sitting separately and Anni was crying. The air hostess apparently asked Anni if she would like to sit with Shrien, but Anni said no,” the Daily Mail quoted Vinod Hindocha, as saying.
However he refused to disclose the source’s name and added: “We are not sure, it is something you will have to check out.”
Twenty-eight-year-old Anni was shot dead when she and her new husband Shrien were hijacked by robbers as their taxi drove through a notorious township in Cape Town. Mr Dewani was released unharmed.
Last night Dewani’s British lawyer, Charlotte Harris, had denied there was any hostility between the couple, but did not refute the allegation that Anni had been crying.
Anni’s father also alleged that his son-in-law and South African police had kept him in dark about the investigation process, and added that Dewani should go back to Cape Town to identify the culprits.
Taxi driver Zola Tongo, 25-year-old suspect Mziwamadoda Qwabe, and another 23-year-old man Xolile Mngeni are currently in police custody for allegedly killing Anni.
The couple had reportedly arrived in the country earlier this month and spent four days on safari in the Kruger National Park. Later they moved to Cape Town and after spending a day lounging by their hotel pool, they decided to head out.
At Cape Town’s five-star Cape Grace Hotel where the couple had been staying, Dewani said: “We spent an a hour-and-a-half driving around the city. At around 9pm, we headed to Somerset West (a suburb 30 miles away),” when they were attacked. (ANI)
