Father of Anni Dewani ‘looking for justice’
Battling to hold back tears, the father of murdered Indian-origin bride Anni Dewani, poured his heart out.
Cape Town: Battling to hold back tears, the father of murdered Indian-origin bride Anni Dewani, poured his heart out and said he was looking for justice.
“We are in South Africa to ensure my daughter Anni gets the justice she deserves,” Vinod Hindocha told reporters outside the Western Cape High Court.
He said it remained difficult to sit in on the trial of one of her alleged killers, Xolile Mngeni, and to listen to what happened the night she was killed.
“One glimpse of happiness was that he [Qwabe] never said, at any point, that my daughter was abused and that was something that really relieved...,” News24 quoted Hindocha, as saying.
According to the report, he also thanked South Africans for their support.
Convicted killer Mziwamadoda Qwabe testified this week about what happened to Dewani when she was killed in November 2010.
Anni, 28, and her husband Shiren, who is the alleged mastermind of the plot, were hijacked on the fifth day of their honeymoon in Cape Town.
After stealing all their valuables, the two hijackers permitted Shrien to leave the car.
Anni was later found shot dead in the car.
