Dewani link to 2007 murder being investigated
National Police Commissioner General Bheki Cele confirmed that police are investigating a link between the 2007 murder of an Eastern Cape doctor and tourist Anni Dewani.
"This after Dewani's husband Shrien allegedly told state witness, Zola Tongo, that he had arranged a murder in a fake hijacking in South Africa before," the SABC news service said.
Media reports said Dr. Pox Raghavjee's - who was apparently murdered in 2007 in King William's Town - widow knew Shrien Dewani and drove to Cape Town to comfort him the death of his wife.
Cele was doing a walkabout at the Cape Gate Mall in Brakenfell outside Cape Town when he informed the media of the investigation into the link.
He also said a fourth suspect named as a " middleman" by Tongo is in reach of police when needed, the SABC reported.
The British businessman is accused of arranging the murder of his wife, 28-year-old Anni, in Cape Town. The woman was found dead in the back of an abandoned taxi with a bullet wound in her neck on November 13.
Dewani was released on bail on Friday while authorities in South Africa want the 30-year-old British citizen extradited for the hearing to be held here.
