A day after complaint, Om Puri goes missing
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Om Puri has gone missing, a day after his wife Nandita Puri accused him of domestic violence and lodged a formal complaint with the police.
Sources told this newspaper that police are on the look-out for the actor who has been booked for allegedly assaulting his wife at his residence in Andheri, Mumbai.
Filing an FIR at Versova Police Station, Nandita alleged that her 62-year-old actor husband went to her house on Thursday and beat her up before being stopped by the couple’s son.
“He came home and got upset when told that I needed some money in view of the approaching festivals, as he was going for three months on a shooting schedule. He suddenly started beating me,” she said.
It is not the first time when the squabble between the couple has surfaced in public. Their marriage is probably on the rocks with the veteran actor reportedly denying any intentions to reconcile. “I need immediate justice. I cannot stay and continue to be beaten by him. He missed two hearings at the family court in Bandra,” Nandita said, demanding action against the actor. “I am not seeking divorce. I am just seeking for maintenance,” she said.
