(NY Daily News) A Queens couple who are apparently crazy in love were reunited Tuesday outside Brooklyn Federal Court after he was released on $20,000 bail for calling in a fake bomb threat against a Caribbean Airlines flight to prevent her from traveling to Guyana.
Danesh Gomanie admitted he was acting out of jealousy — and the influence of a few beers — when he was overcome with fear his girlfriend was going to hook up with her ex-husband.
“It’s just jealousy,” said the girlfriend, who declined to give her name. “We’re back together. I forgive him.”
Gomanie, 33, is charged with calling 911 on July 27 and telling the operator there was a woman traveling to Guyana on flight No. 527 from Kennedy Airport on July 29, and she would be carrying a bomb or drugs, according to the criminal complaint.
He gave the operator his girlfriend’s first name and Customs and Border Protection officers confirmed there was a woman with a ticket on the flight.
Meanwhile, the FBI traced the call to Gomanie’s cellphone and agents fanned out to separately interview the couple. She told the agents she had an argument with Gomanie about her trip to Guyana, and he admitted that he was “fearful that she might reunite with her ex-husband who lived there.”
After he was released, Gomanie said he was in bed with his girlfriend when the FBI came to arrest him early Tuesday morning.
She laughed off the idea that she wanted to get back with her ex-husband, whom she has been separated from for 10 years.
Gomanie’s father was confused, too.
“I don’t know what they see in each other,” Devanand Gomanie said. “I told him to find someone younger and have children.”
Defense lawyer Mildred Whalen said Gomanie agreed to live with his father at his father’s home in Jamaica, Queens, as a condition of his release.
Gomanie works as a mechanic for a private company at Kennedy Airport.
