Update: The police has been trying to trace the absconding actor
Actor Om Puri was accused of domestic violence following a complaint lodged by wife Nandita Puri. The police reached Om Puri’s home to arrest him but he was missing. The investigation officer Harishchandra Parmale, senior police inspector of Versova police station said, “the police had gone to the actor’s house to arrest him on Friday, but he was not there. Currently the police are tracing the actor through his cellphone. ” According to Nandita Puri’s complaint, Om Puri had beaten her with a stick and also threatened her.
There have been issues between the couple for quite some time now. In 2009, Nandita released her biography (Unlikely Hero: Story of Om Puri) on the veteran actor which revealed about his affair with his maid. Also a little before that, there were problems between Om and Nandita when the actor’s first wife Seema returned to his life in 2008. Om had married Seema in 1990 but the couple was together only for three years after which they divorced.
Earlier report: The veteran Bollywood actor’s wife Nandita Puri filed a complaint with the cops
Renowned Bollywood actor Om Puri has been charged with domestic violence by the Mumbai police. The actor’s wife Nandita Puri filed a complaint with the Versova police station, say reports.
Om and Nandita had been having problems in their relationship ever since Om’s tell-all book came out. But the warring couple had recently gone on a holiday together with their son Ishaan, so one thought that all was well.
NDTV senior journalist Barkha Dutt tweeted about the case, saying, “So Om Puri, who once bizarrely made up a husband for me who runs a japanese cafe in Canada ( dont ask) charged with domestic violence”.
Ironically, Om had just yesterday commented on the recent gang-rape case in Mumbai, saying, “Stringent punishment should be there so that people are afraid of the law. Nobody is afraid of the law because it is not effective, it takes so much of time.”
