London: The family of an NRI British
businessman accused of plotting the brutal killing of his
Indo-Swedish wife on their honeymoon in South Africa, plans to
build a school in India in her memory.

Shrien Dewani`s family is planning to join with
28-year-old Anni`s family, who was shot dead in Cape Town on
November 13, to build a school in India, where they have
roots, a relative said.

"We`ve collected over 15,000 pounds jointly between
the families from people who wanted to pay tribute to Anni and
that money`s going to be used to build a school in India in
her memory, the relative was quoted as saying by The Sun.

"Anni`s been taken from us all and we won`t get her
back but what we can do is give to, and help, other people."

The two groups of relatives will fund the project
using thousands of pounds in donations from well-wishers.

South African authorities are seeking to extradite
Dewani after a taxi driver serving time for his part in the
horrific crime claimed the wealthy care home owner set a hit
man on Anni.

The 30-year-old Dewani denies any involvement in the
death of his bride.
