Bhadreshkumar Chetanbhai Patel, an India-born man has reportedly made it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)’s top ten most wanted fugitives list. FBI is the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States. Patel is accused of murdering his wife Palak in Hanover in Maryland in the year 2015.
The FBI has also announced a reward up to $100,000 for people who could pass on any information about the Patel. The report suggested hat Patel killed his wife in a Dunkin Donuts Outlet where they worked together by striking her with a sharp object several times leading to her death.
The FBI believes that he still could be in the country considering that he had not fled the country following the legal procedure. Also, his visa had expired a month before he committed the crime. FBI asserted that Patel was last known to be in the Newark, New Jersey area.
“Patel was charged with first degree murder, second degree murder, first degree assault, second degree assault, and dangerous weapon with intent to injure. A federal arrest warrant was issued in the United States District Court, District of Maryland, Baltimore, Maryland, on April 20, 2015, after Patel was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution,” FBI said in a statement.
As per reports, Palak had apparently expressed her desire to come back to India but Bhadreshkumar wouldn’t let her. The FBI has also termed the case of murder as an act of domestic violence. The police who have made several efforts to nab Patel but have not found any information related to him as yet.
