Parents Want to Sue Son-in-Law for ‘Bisexual Shock’

The parents of a murdered girl want to sue their daughter’s husband because he didn’t tell them that he was bisexual.

This is the civil section that is separate from the young man who was charged in the murder of Anni Dewani, a 28-year-old engineer from Sweden. Her husband, Shrien Dewani was accused of hiring three hit men who highjacked and killed Anni while they were on thedewani3_3227815cir honeymoon in Cape Town, South Africa.

The parents, Vinod and Nilam Hindocha, told Mail Online that they plan to take civil action in London no matter what happens in the criminal trial.

On the opening day of the trial, in a statement he released, Dewani, who is 34, said that he was bisexual and that he had hired male prostitutes. He had kept the secret from the family for the nearly four years that they knew each other.

The couple had a lavish wedding and the parents said they never would have allowed the marriage to take place if they knew of his bisexuality.

Nilam Hindocha said: “If I knew Shrien was gay or bisexual I would never have allowed Anni to get married … I would have cancelled the wedding and I am sure Anni would never have got married to him if she had known the truth about him … I feel he has been dishonest over his sexuality. He has lied to us and he cheated on her with other men.”

A judge threw out the case in South Africa, and the family is now trying to figure out a way to bring up the “bisexual shock” in civil court. The father two weeks ago had his armed severed in an industrial accident with a forklift two weeks ago, but the arm was reattached and he may regain full use of the arm, doctors said.
