The FBI on Tuesday added a 26-year- old Indian national on its top 10 "Most Wanted List", two years after he went missing after allegedly killing his wife inside the kitchen of a Dunkin Donuts restaurant in the US.
The FBI offered up to USD 100,000 for any information that leads to the arrest of Bhadreshkumar Chetanbhai Patel.
The agency warned that Patel, who stabbed his 21-year-old wife Palak Bhadreskumar Patel multiple times with a large knife, should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.
Palak was found beaten to death inside the restaurant kitchen in Hanover, Maryland on April 12, 2015.
Both the husband and wife were Dunkin Donuts employees.
Bhadreshkumar's been charged with first- and second- degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, and a weapons offence in connection with her death.
A federal arrest warrant was issued a week after Palak's death as Bhadreshkumar was charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
Investigators said he was last seen taking a hotel shuttle to Newark Penn Station in New Jersey on 13 April, 2015 around 10 AM.
Police said Bhadreshkumar, originally from Kantrodi Ta Viramgam, Gujarat, India, had a visa to be in the US, but it had expired and there was no indication he was able to legally leave the country, the report said.
Investigators believe that Palak wanted to return to India, though her husband was against the idea.
"Palak Patel was murdered in a depraved act of domestic violence," Anne Arundel County police Chief Tim Altomare said in a statement.
