Text showing Shrien Dewani 'discussing payment for wife's murder' missing
London, Nov 19 (ANI): A text message in which Brit-Indian businessman Shrien Dewani allegedly discussed payment for his bride Anni's murder is missing, it has emerged.
Jailed cabbie Zola Tongo claimed Dewani ordered the hit and texted, 'the money is in an envelope in a pouch behind the front passenger seat.'
Tragic Anni, 28, was then fatally shot during a carjacking near Cape Town, South Africa, two years ago.
Records revealed during the trial of alleged hitman Xolile Mngeni show Tongo texting Dewani seven times on the day of the killing.
But no texts were sent by Dewani to Tongo, although records showed he did ring him twice, the Sun reports.
Further evidence from a statement made to police by co-accused Mziwamadoda Qwabe suggested Dewani , who was in the car, begged the gunmen not to harm him or his wife.
Qwabe and Mngeni each say the other shot Anni.
According to the report, the inconsistencies cast doubt on the case against carehome tycoon Dewani, 32, who has denied any part in Anni's murder. (ANI)
