Pietermaritzburg - A policeman tried to plant drugs in a doctor's surgery at the behest of the man accused of arranging the doctor's murder, the Pietermaritzburg High Court heard on Wednesday.
Rajivee Soni stands accused of hiring hitmen to shoot dead doctor Bhavish Sewran as he emerged from his surgery in May 2013.
He has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, and perjury, by laying charges claiming that Sewran sexually assaulted him and sexually assaulted the woman.
Warrant Officer Sutendran Naidoo told the court Soni suspected the doctor of having an affair with his wife. Naidoo testified that he and Soni had tried to discredit the doctor.
Soni allegedly laid false charges against the doctor, saying Sewran sexually assaulted him and a woman.
