Man stabs wife to death for liking Hrithik Roshan, hangs himself

NEW YORK: A man stabbed his wife to death and hung himself from a tree because he was "insanely jealous" of his wife's fascination with Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, according to media reports.

Dineshwar Budhidat of Queens allegedly stabbed his spouse Donne Dojoy, 27, who worked as a bartender after which he committed suicide on Friday,  a report in The New York Post stated.

“She told me when she was at home watching a film or listening to a song (with Hrithik in it), he would ask her to take it off because he would get so jealous,” Mala Ramdhani, 52, a karaoke singer at Gemini’s Ultra Lounge in Ozone Park, where Dojoy tended bar, said. “Any film Hrithik acted in, she wanted to see it.”

The report said Dojoy was no longer living in the same apartment with her husband but had agreed to come over to watch a film and be with Budhidat. But later in the evening, the husband texted his wife’s sister saying he had killed her and informed that the key to the apartment could be found under a flower pot, police sources said later Friday.

He left his wife’s lifeless body in the apartment and hung himself from a tree in a field nearby, the article stated. According to reports, Budhidat had assaulted Dojoy weeks after they got married in July. Dojoy even procured an order of protection against Budhidat that came in a court case which resulted in him being arrested in August for slapping and strangling Dojoy a week earlier inside their Queens apartment.

“I think he loved her but at the same time, he was obsessed with her, because of the type of job she did,” Rodney, a friend of Dojoy's, said in the report. “She looked good, she always made her money, so he was probably jealous of her.”

“Dojoy had told her friends that he was controlling and was even violent with her at times. She talked about him abusing her, controlling her, beating her, scaring her, threatening to kill her,” Rodney added.

“She never took it seriously because she loved him.”
