Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan has a huge fan following. But, who would have thought that having an innocent crush on the actor would be a reason for one’s murder.
Yes, in a shocking turn of events, a 33-year-old man in the US allegedly stabbed his wife to death all because she had a crush on actor Hrithik Roshan.
Dineshwar Budhidat of Queens fatally stabbed his wife Donne Dojoy, 27, who worked as a bartender and then hanged himself from a tree on Friday.
Jealous husband stabs wife to death
“She told me when she was at home watching a movie or listening to a song (with Roshan in it), he would ask her to take it off because he would get so jealous,” the Post quoted her friend Mala Ramdhani, 52, a karaoke singer at a lounge where Dojoy was a bartender.
Her favourite movie was “Kaho Na Pyaar Hai”, Ramdhani told the Post.
The report said Dojoy had moved out of the apartment where she lived in with her husband but had agreed to stop by the place to watch a movie and be with Budhidat. But later in the evening, Budhidat texted his wife’s sister, saying he had killed her, and instructing that the key to the apartment could be found under a flower pot, police sources said on Friday.
He then left behind his wife’s stabbed body and hanged himself from a tree in a field nearby, the report said.
The New York Daily News reported that Budhidat had assaulted her weeks after they got married in July. Dojoy even had an order of protection against Budhidat that came in a court case which stemmed from his arrest 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.”
Dojoy’s aunt, Silvin Dojoy, called her niece “a lovely young lady. A beautiful girl. She was intelligent, and she worked hard.”
Of the husband, she said, “He was a coward. Who acts like that? Lift your hands against a woman? That’s a cowardly act. There is no reason for him to have done what he did. It’s unbelievable. He had no right to do what he did.”
