All smiles: Shrien Dewani with wife Anni Dewani on their wedding day
The message sent to Sneha Hindocha via Facebook also hurtfully stated: ‘Hope you are comfortable in your dead cousin’s saris.’
The 27-year-old believes the message may have been sent by supporters of Anni’s husband Shrien Dewani, who is accused of orchestrating the killing during the couple’s honeymoon in South Africa.
Last week Home Secretary Theresa May rubber-stamped an extradition order to send Mr Dewani to Cape Town to answer claims that he offered to pay two hitmen £1,400 to kill his 28-year-old wife in a faked carjacking.
The move follows a campaign by the bereaved Hindocha family, who demanded the British businessman stand trial to give them the answers that would allow them closure.

The Facebook message was sent under the name ‘Sneha Mushru’ – the name Miss Hindocha will take when she marries her fiance next year.
This further convinced her the sender had knowledge of the Hindocha family.
Miss Hindocha said: ‘It must be someone who knows me. I know who I think it is but I don’t want to say anything because I don’t want to cause any problems.’ Miss Hindocha and Anni moved to Britain together and shared a flat in Luton before Anni married Mr Dewani in India two weeks before her murder.
She said the cruel words in the message hurt her deeply.
‘When I read it the first time I started to cry and I got more and more guilty feelings,’ she said. ‘I already had a kind of guilt – you always say, “I wish I would have done this, I wish I would have done that.”
‘Me and Anni would just talk about everything like we always did but now I wish I had said different things to her.
‘But that’s something I have to live with every day, I don’t need someone throwing it in my face and saying you could have stopped [her dying].
‘I got more and more frightened because it’s just messages now, but what’s next?’
Mr Dewani was implicated in his wife’s murder by Zolo Tongo, the couple’s taxi driver in Cape Town, who claimed in a plea bargain that Mr Dewani had arranged the killing.
Tongo has already been jailed for 18 years after admitting his part in the crime. Two other men, one seriously ill with a brain tumour, face trial next year.
