Brit-Indian hubby’s alleged involvement in bride’s murder ‘unforgivable’: Anni’s sisterDecember 10th, 2010 - 2:51 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 10(ANI): Brit-Indian Anni Dewani’s sister has said that Shrien Dewani’s alleged involvement in her fatal shooting in South Africa last month was completely “unforgivable”.
Shrien was arrested on Tuesday after being charged with conspiracy to murder.
The 30-year-old faces extradition to South Africa, but has emphatically denied any involvement in his wife’s death.
“If he (Shrien) was involved in planning the outrage, then what he has done is unforgivable. You can’t just kill somebody. It is scary. What the hell was he thinking?” the Daily Express quoted Ami Denborg, as saying.”It is terrible enough to lose a sister, but it is even more terrible to lose a sister in such a way. The most sad part in all of this is that it doesn’t matter what happens to Shrien, to the driver, or to whoever killed her. I will never get my sister back,” she added.
Speaking from Sweden, where the family come from and she still lives, Ami said: “It’s really difficult for the family to hear this; for everyone in this situation. All we want is the truth.”
She further said that Anni and Shrien had met about 16 months ago during one of Anni’s regular visits to the UK to see friends and family.
Shrien later proposed in Paris and they married in Mumbai just weeks before Anni was killed during their honeymoon in South Africa.
Shrien and Anni were two weeks into their Cape Town honeymoon when the taxi they were in was hijacked in the Khayelitsha township by two men armed with guns on November 13.
The 28-year-old Anni was shot dead by the robbers, but Shrien was released unharmed.
Taxi driver Zola Tongo has claimed that Shrien had hired hitmen to kill Anni, and arranged a fake carjacking to cover up the crime.
Tongo was sentenced to 18 years by a South African court for his part in the killing, reduced from 25 years as part of a plea bargain.
Two other men accused of the murder are due to stand trial in South Africa next year. (ANI)
