Cape Town - The griefstricken father of murdered honeymoon bride Anni Hindocha has spoken out for the first time following the end of her husband’s murder trial in South Africa last year.
In an excerpt from his memoir published in the Daily Mail, a UK tabloid, Vinod Hindocha described how his daughter’s husband Shrien Dewani “insulted” her memory, held a pizza party before her funeral and threw a tantrum over her coffin.
Last year Dewani was tried for murder for allegedly orchestrating the death of his wife, staging the hijacking in Gugulethu in which she was killed in November 2010. The pair was on honeymoon in the country.
But the case was thrown out by High Court judge Jeanette Traverso and Dewani was acquitted of the laundry list of charges against him in December. He quickly returned to his home in the UK.
At the end of the court case, Hindocha’s family sobbed on the court steps as they spoke to reporters. “Today we’re feeling really sad because we never heard the full story of what happened,” said her sister, Ami Denborg.
