London, Nov 22 (ANI): Brit-Indian business tycoon Shrien Dewani, whose wife was killed during their honeymoon trip in Cape Town, could reportedly be targeted by the killers in an attempt to stop him from identifying them when he flies to South Africa this week.

According to The Sun, Dewani would be provided with armed guards to protect him from any attack.

The driver of the couple's hijacked taxi has gone into hiding, fearing that he would be killed because he too had seen the gunmen's faces.

Anni Dewani's funeral was held yesterday.

Meanwhile, Cape Town detectives have promised "an explosive revelation" in the case.

"The new information will show this was not a random hijacking," the paper quoted a police source, as saying.

South African police had earlier arrested a 26-year-old man from Cape Town's Khayelitsha slum in connection with the slaying Anni. Meanwhile, two more local men, aged 26 and 31, have been arrested on suspicion of their involvement in the murder case.

The couple had reportedly arrived in the country last week and spent four days on safari in the Kruger National Park. On Friday they moved to Cape Town and after spending Saturday lounging by their hotel pool, they decided to head out.

At Cape Town's five-star Cape Grace Hotel where the couple had been staying, Dewani said: "We spent an a hour-and-a-half driving around the city. At around 9pm, we headed to Somerset West (a suburb 30 miles away)," when they were attacked. (ANI)
