Oscar Pistorius Assaulted In Prison


The ‘blade runner’, Oscar Pistorius is presently nursing rib sores and a painful back, following brawl he was involved in at the Atteridgeville Correctional Centre.

Fellow prisoners, who had been upset with the athlete’s incessant long call decided to beat him up.

Pistorius had been spending too much time recently, obviously speaking with his lawyer, an insider had said.

“Other inmates who were queueing to use the phone got angry, but Pistorius wouldn’t budge and that’s when a fight broke out,” the source disclosed.

The former South Africa’s sprint runner has apparently been on the phone a lot since the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein extended his sentence to 13 years, after the State applied to have his initial six-year prison increased.

North Gauteng High Court Judge Thokozile Masipa initially sentenced himto five years for culpable homicide in 2014. He was arrested on Valentine’s Day 2013 for shooting and killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Ofentse Morwane, Gauteng Correctional Service’s spokesman, said: “Oscar Pistorius sustained a minor injury last week. An internal investigation will establish the facts and ensure that appropriate action is taken as incidents of assaults are not allowed.”
