London: British-Indian millionaire Shrien Dewani's house in the UK was vandalised, a day after he returned from South Africa after being cleared by a court of plotting the murder of his Indo-Swedish bride during their honeymoon.

White paint was thrown over the driveway of the millionaire businessman's plush home at Westbury-on-Trym, a suburb of the city of Bristol.

It is not known if Dewani was home at the time of the incident.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesperson said the matter had not been reported to the force.

"We were made aware of the incident this morning. We are looking into it," he said today.

The 34-year-old millionaire businessman was extradited to South Africa in April for facing trial for arranging the murder of his 28-year-old wife Anni Hindocha, who was kidnapped and killed during their honeymoon near Cape Town in 2010.

Western Cape High Court Deputy Judge Jeanette Traverso threw out the case on Monday after ruling that the assertion that the bisexual care home boss from Bristol had arranged the killing was flawed and described evidence from a key prosecution witness as "riddled with contradictions".

Dewani had always denied plotting to arrange the murder of his wife.

The judge's decision left Anni's family devastated, with her sister Ami Denborg saying they felt "failed by the justice system".

Anni's father is reportedly planning to sue Dewani on the basis that he "deceived" them about his bisexuality.
