Brit-Indian honeymooner thrown out of London clinic after hurling plate at patient’s doorApril 13th, 2011 - 1:27 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 13 (ANI): Shrien Dewani, the Brit-Indian millionaire who has been charged with masterminding his wife’s murder during their honeymoon in Cape Town last year, was thrown out of The Priory Clinic in London after throwing a plate at another patient’s door.
The 31-year-old Indian-origin business tycoon also threw a cushion at a nurse, and staff said that his violent outbursts had become “completely unmanageable”, The Sun reports.
They also alleged that Dewani, who has been placed on suicide watch, also terrifying fellow patients and was no longer welcome at the clinic.
The paper quoted a mental health worker as saying that Dewani threw the plate at the patient’s door after he had asked him why he was not in South Africa. He also hurled the cushion at a nurse.
A nurse said that other patients complained about his violent behaviour, adding: “Other patients are frightened of him. They have told me they are intimidated.”
Dewani was hauled before Bristol Magistrates’ Court on Monday after being arrested over breaching his bail conditions, but his lawyers claimed that he needed continued hospital care for post-traumatic stress disorder and severe mental illness.
Judge Simon Cooper sent Dewani, of Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol, to secure Cygnet Hospital near Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, for treatment.
“It’s quite obvious to me that Mr Dewani requires proper medical treatment in order to improve his mental state, to reduce the risk of suicide and to improve his ability to assist his legal team in extradition proceedings,” Cooper said.
The 31-year-old Indian-origin businessman is fighting moves to have him extradited to South Africa for trial. (ANI)
