Anni Dewani seen happy before her murder: Report
London, March 31 (IANS) Indian-origin bride Anni Dewani is seen beaming with happiness as she walks along a hotel corridor in Cape Town with husband Shrien just before her horrific contract killing, according to a new CCTV footage.
Murder suspect Shrien's extradition to South Africa has been temporarily halted on mental health grounds.
The CCTV image of November 2010 shows the casually-dressed couple on the morning of the killing, with Shrien carrying newspapers and a book, The Sun reported.
Another footage shows the couple in the evening dressed for their night out. Shortly afterwards, they are seen posing with arms around each other in the hotel bar.
Within a few hours, their taxi was hijacked by two gunmen who shot Anni dead.
Anni, 28, a resident of Sweden, was shot when a taxi the couple were travelling in was hijacked in Gugulethu township on the outskirts of Cape Town.
She was found dead in the abandoned vehicle with a bullet wound to her neck.
Taxi driver Zola Tongo, who drove the newlyweds to the area, has admitted his part in the crime. He said in a plea agreement with prosecutors that Dewani ordered the carjacking and paid for a hit on his wife.
Shrien's extradition to South Africa has now been halted on mental health grounds. Two High Court judges in London ruled it would be "unjust and oppressive" to order his removal.
But they said it was plainly in the interests of justice that he should be extradited "as soon as he is fit" to be tried.
Dewani, a resident of Bristol, denies any wrongdoing.
He has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. His lawyers say his life will be at risk if he is extradited.
Anni's sister Ami Denborg said her family "just want him to get better now so he can finally go to South Africa and tell us what happened".
"... it is very painful for us, but we want to get to the truth about what happened to our sister Anni. We just want to know the truth because it is all about our dearest little sister who was murdered," she said.
