London – Vandals in the UK welcomed Shrien Dewani home by tossing white paint across the entrance of his home, according to reports.

Eyewitness News reported that the attack on Dewani’s home came within hours of him landing in the country.

Dewani returned home after being acquitted of master-minding his wife, Anni Hindocha’s murder while on honeymoon in Cape Town in November 2010.

Western Cape High Court Deputy Judge President Jeanette Traverso granted Dewani's application for his discharge on the charge of killing his wife.

Traverso ruled there was not enough evidence to convict Dewani. She said it was regrettable that many unanswered questions remained about what happened the night Anni was killed, but she could not be swayed by public opinion.

According to EWN the paint was tossed across the entrance to the house, landing on the walls and the gate.

The Time reported that there has been a growing interest by locals in Dewani’s house. One curious driver trying to catch a glimpse of the house also found himself in a bit of a fender bender with police.

A police spokesperson said the vandalism is still being investigated.
