Murder accused Patel battles to explain to court why he never handed clothes to police officers

Double murder accused Rameez Patel has battled to explain to the High Court why he didn’t submit all the clothing he wore on the day of his wife’s killing, claiming that officers simply didn’t ask him to.

Patel will return to the dock this morning where he is under cross-examination by the State.

His wife Fatima Patel’s body was found in a pool of blood at their Nirvana home in Limpopo in 2015 after they allegedly had a fight.
