A 33-year-old man in the United States allegedly stabbed his wife to death and then hanged himself because of his seething jealousy of his adoration for Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan, according to a news report. Dineshwar Budhidat of Queens fatally stabbed his wife, Donne Dojoy, 27, who worked as a bartender, then hanged herself from a tree on Friday, according to a New York Post report.
Budhidat was “extremely jealous” that his wife was a huge fan of Hrithik, Dojoy’s friends told The Post, adding that his love for the actor had made him angry.
“She told me when she was at home watching a movie or listening to a song (with Hrithik in it) he would ask her to turn it off because he would get so jealous”, Mala Ramdhani, 52 -year-old karaoke singer at Gemini’s Ultra Lounge in Ozone Park (where Dojoy ran the bar), said.
“Any movie Hrithik Roshan starred in, she wanted to see it,” Ramdhani added.
The report said Dojoy had moved from her apartment where she lived with her husband, but agreed to stop by to watch a movie with Budhidat. Later that evening, however, Budhidat texted his wife’s sister, saying he had killed her, and indicating that the key to the apartment could be found under a flowerpot, sources said. police officers later on Friday.
He then left his wife’s impaled body behind and hanged himself from a tree in a nearby field, the report said.
The New York Daily News reported that Budhidat had already assaulted her just weeks after the two tied the knot in July. Dojoy even had a stay order against Budhidat after a court hearing, which stemmed from his arrest in August for slapping and strangling Dojoy a week earlier in their Queens apartment.
“I think he loved her but at the same time he was obsessed with her, because of the type of work she was doing,” Rodney, a friend of Dojoy’s, said in the report. “She looked good, she was still making money, so he was probably jealous of her.” Dojoy had told his friends that he was in control of her and even was sometimes violent with her.
“She said he mistreated her, controlled her, beat her, scared her, threatened to kill her,” Rodney added.
“She never took him seriously because she loved him.” Remembering her niece as “a lovely young lady,” Dojoy’s aunt, Silvin Dojoy, added that she was “a beautiful, smart, hard-working girl.”
Of the husband, she said: “He was a coward. Who acts like that? Raise your hands against a woman? It is a cowardly act. There is no reason why he did what he did. It’s incredible. He was not allowed to do what he did.
