Anni told of wedding night woes - report
Cape Town - SMSes reportedly sent by murdered bride Anni Dewani during her honeymoon have cast a further shadow over the man accused of arranging her killing.
Her husband, Shrien, is suspected of masterminding her murder in a staged hijacking while they were on honeymoon in Cape Town in November 2010.
According to an IOL report, Anni had told a relative that her marriage to her murder-accused husband had not been consummated on the wedding night, and that he "did not touch" her.
It's alleged that the startling claim was made to her cousin just days before she was shot and killed, sources close to the investigation said.
Previous newspaper reports claimed that Anni had expressed doubts about her impending union with Shrien, but this is the first indication of any unhappiness after the wedding.
The SMS claims follow various reports in the British media about Shrien's alleged encounters with male prostitutes.
A British political figure has also alleged he had S&M sex sessions with Dewani, as well as a series of sordid encounters at gay fetish club The Hoist in London.
The 53-year-old man told police they had sex in a room of the club where “spanking and punishment” parties were hosted on several occasions between 2003 and 2008.
Shrien had faced extradition to South Africa for his alleged involvement in Anni's murder, but Britain's high court recently halted the process on mental health grounds.
He would not be not be extradited until his health condition improves, it ruled.
