The accused of rape as well as assault Nicholas Ninow is reported to have hanged himself.
Nicholas Ninow was arrested at a Silverton restaurant for allegedly raping a seven-year-old. He also assaulted a worker at a residential complex he lived in, in the east of Pretoria on January 29.
The consideration of his case was adjourned by the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court until March 5, thanks to the petition by his attorney. He was ordered to undergo a mental observation in the interests of a fair trial before he submits his plea.
Police department officials reported that they were investigating the death case. The main version is the assumption that the rapist hanged himself.
