CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape High Court on Wednesday watched a video of Anni Dewani's alleged gunman pointing out the crime scene to police.

Xolile Mngeni has pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him.

In a trial within a trial, the alleged hitman's lawyer has claimed his client was tortured before confessing to police in 2010.

The British tourist was killed while on honeymoon during an apparent staged hijacking in Cape Town.

The video features Mngeni and a policemen standing on a Gugulethu street on a clear summer day.

As Mngeni leans against a police vehicle, he points out the spot where he and "Mawewe" hijacked a vehicle, transporting three people at the time.

He then identifies the corner where the driver was dropped-off.

The film then shows them travelling to Khayelitsha, before Mngeni points out where the man, believed to be Shrien Dewani, was dropped off.

When they reach Mew Way Road, Mngeni tells officers the woman, thought to be Anni Dewani, was killed somewhere along this particular road.

The video seems to suggest that Mngeni was aware of his rights; there is no visual indication that he was intimidated into pointing out the crime scene.

Two men, Mziwamadoda Qwabe and Zola Tongo, are currently serving lengthy sentences for their part in the crime.

The duo implicated Mngeni and Shrien Dewani in the crime.

Qwabe testified they were paid R15,000 to kill the 28-year-old.

Dewani denies any involvement in his wife's murder.
