Sadia's father, Shailendra Sukhraj, also shot and killed the alleged hijacker, Siyabonga Balose, according to IOL.

Sukhraj reportedly fired at the car as the hijackers drove away with it in an attempt to stop them. His daughter was in the vehicle at the time and this was when she was shot.

The prosecution in the case has argued that knew that his actions could have consequences and, as a result, he should be held accountable for Sadia's death.
