Om Puri’s wife Nanditha has filed a case of assault and criminal deterrence after 63 year old actor allegedly hot her following an argument. The incident happened when Om Puri dropped at the Versova apartment on Thursday evening after a family court asked him to pay Nandita monthly maintenance.
“We have registered the complaint and booked the actor for voluntarily causing hurt by a dangerous weapon or means under Section 324, criminal intimidation under Section 506, and word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman under Section 509 of the IPC,” said Harishchandra Parmale, senior police inspector of Versova police station.
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 cell phone. Om Puri is absconding at present. We will arrest him as soon as we trace him.
