Jealousy as we all know it, is a destructive emotion: it has the potential to suffocate a happy partnership and break down the trust in the worst possible way and this Indian -origin man showed just how bad things can get with this obsessive behaviour.
In a shocking incident, an abusive Indian man stabbed his wife to death in New York City all because she had a crush on Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan.
According to reports, 33-year-old Dineshwar Budhidat, stabbed his bartender wife, Donne Dojoy, 27, to death on Friday and then hanged himself from a tree later.
After the brutal murder the woman’s friends claimed that he had raged over Dojoy’s infatuation with Indian actor Hrithik Roshan in the past.
Gemini’s Ultra Lounge, karaoke singer Mala Ramdhani told that Dojoy had told her before that whenever she was at home and watching a movie starring Roshan or listening to his songs, Budhidat “would ask her to take it off because he would get so jealous”.
“Any movie Hrithik acted in, she wanted to see it,” Ramdhani said.
“Her favorite movie was Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai,” she added.
Dineshwar Budhidat was known to be abusive and controlling, so much so that his wife had a restraining order against him when the murder occurred.
“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.”
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.
He then left behind his wife’s stabbed body and hanged himself from a tree in a field nearby, the report said.
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.”
