Durban - A married doctor, allegedly killed by a businessman for having an affair with his wife, had often been beaten up by his mother-in-law for having affairs, the Pietermaritzburg High Court heard on Thursday.
Attorney Naren Sangham on Thursday put it to State witness Sugen Naidoo, a former policeman and drug user, that there were a number of instances of Dr Bhavish Sewram’s wife and her mother knowing about Sewram’s having affairs. Naidoo replied he knew nothing of that.
Prosecutor Johan du Toit objected to the questions, but Sangham referred him to Rajivee Soni’s plea in which he said that should the need arise, evidence would be led that others besides himself harboured motives to have the doctor killed.
Naidoo told the court he knew of only one assault, which Soni had told him about.
