PRETORIA - Photos taken at the crime scene of Olympic and Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius's home will not jeopardise the state's case, the South African Police Service (SAPS) revealed on Friday.

British broadcaster Sky News obtained several photographs showing different parts of the crime scene at his luxury Pretoria East home.

Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentines' Day.

He claims it was an accident, but the state said it was premeditated murder.

The police's Phuti Setati said, "Our investigation is on track and we will go ahead without our focus being shifted from the investigations we are conducting."

He declined to comment on the source of the photographs, but said the matter is being investigated.

Eyewitness News understands the photos were not from the police docket and were probably taken by a policeman using a cellphone.

Pistorius's legal team asked the NPA to explain the leak.
