New Delhi: Tainted paralympian Oscar Pistorius, who has been accused of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, created a scene inside the court on Wednesday.
During the hearing on Wednesday, Pistorius removed his prosthetic legs and walked on his stumps in a packed courtroom in a desperate last bid to convince the judge that he was too vulnerable to have killed his girlfriend intentionally three years ago.
The athlete, known as the Blade Runner, looked humiliated when he was asked to remove his prosthetic limbs to expose his stumps to the televised hearing which will decide his murder sentence.
As he struggled to stand still in front of the judge, and in the glare of live television coverage, a cameraman had to step forward to support him.
