Briton charged with plotting to kill husband in Lang’ata

A British woman has been charged with conspiracy to kill her husband in Nairobi. Trushna Asvinkumar Velan denied plotting the murder of Asvinkumar Bhikhalal Velan at Swaminirayan estate in Langata.

She allegedly paid hitmen who attacked her husband, now nursing injuries at a Nairobi hospital. The incident, according to a charge sheet, was committed on March 13, 2016.

The prosecution opposed a bond application saying being a foreigner, the accused could abscond.

The court directed the prosecution to file an affidavit on Friday stating the reasons the suspect should be denied bond. The accused has been remanded awaiting the case’s mentioning on Friday.
