London, Nov 22 (ANI): Brit-Indian business tycoon Shrien Dewani, whose wife was killed during their honeymoon trip in Cape Town, has been asked by the local police to return back to that place to identify the killers and help the investigation process, as they fear that Anni was a victim of a 'planned attack'.

Police raised their suspicion after they had obtained a set of photograph prints of Anni on the honeymoon, which they obtained from Dewani to have a look for suspicious individuals in the background of the photos before she was hijacked.

Zola Tongo, the driver of the couple's hijacked taxi is reported to have turned a "state witness".

"This is a very bad situation and I am in fear of my life. I did not do it. I have done nothing wrong," The Telegraph quoted him, as saying.

Meanwhile, Cape Town detectives have promised "an explosive revelation" in the case, saying: "The new information will show this was not a random hijacking."

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)
