THE widow of murdered Brit who was choked to death by a martial arts expert at a hotel in Thailand says their toddler son “asks for daddy every night”.
Amitpal Singh Bajaj, 34, was brutally slaughtered after he sacrificed himself for wife Bandhna Kaur Bajaj, 34, and their son Veer after alleged killer Roger Bullman burst into their hotel room last month.

Bandhna told Daily Mail: “He was a very loving and protecting father. Veer really misses him. He is asking for him almost every night because he prefers his dad making him sleep.
“Even today he told me he is missing he because he can say a few words.”
She added: “Every morning when I wake up it is the hardest because I feel I have to re-live that feeling again of not having him.”
The heartbroken widow said she hopes police will soon arrest suspect Bullman, 53, who choked her husband to death and then fled after being given bail.

She continued: “I do think it like a nightmare. Sometimes I think that he is on a business trip and he will come back but then I tell myself he isn’t coming back.
“I guess I have to be strong for Veer as well and if I completely lose it then it will be very hard for him.
“My husband named my son Veer which means strength and he always wanted him to be a warrior with his mind.
“He said ‘If you are strong in your mind you will be strong in your life’ so I will always remind Veer of that.”
The row began when Amitpal complained after hearing rowdy noises coming from the room next door as him, his wife and their two-year-old son were trying to sleep.
Bandhna has said they were originally disturbed at around midnight but then fell to sleep only to be wakened at around 4am when they could hear loud noises and banging started coming from their folding panel balcony door, which separated both rooms.
She said suspect Bullman, from Norway, “started charging at my husband” as they all tried to flee the room, in Phuket, Thailand.

Amitpal screamed for her to take Veer to safety as he was choked to death, she said.
“As the man was kicking, punching and just, beating him up, my husband told me to please leave and save our son. He said, ‘Please just go, go, save Veer’.”
She said as she took their young child, she saw her husband fall to the ground and then fled the hotel before hiding in a tree.
Bandhna said she begged reception to send someone to help her husband.
“I could still hear him screaming. I didn’t want to be attacked,” she said.
“My husband sacrificed his life to save my son’s life and mine. He will always be our hero.”
Earlier the family had asked the hotel staff at the five star Centara Grand Hotel in Karon, Phuket, to intervene after the noise continued for two hours in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
‘HEARD HIM SCREAMING’
Security guards visited the room of Bullman but the noise is said to have became worse – with the Norwegian singing on the balcony.
Amitpal then allegedly grabbed a steak knife from his room and decided to confront Bullman at 4am on Wednesday, according to The Phuket News.
But troublemaker Bullman, who was drunk, allegedly refused to lower his noise and continued yelling and singing, according to the cops.
They started quarrelling which later turned into a fight.
The suspect told police that Amitpal first stabbed him in his left shoulder before he used his martial-art skills to grip the Briton in a choke hold and continued choking him to death as Ampital’s horrified wife looked on.
Bullman was arrested for manslaughter in the morning at Karon police station.
