"He has been accused of domestic violence. A complaint was filed by his wife on the 23rd of August. There have been no developments since then. The actor is not in custody yet," a police official from the police station told IANS.
However, the official refused to reveal more information about the case.
An alumnus of the National School of Drama and the Film and Television Institute of India, Om Puri carved a niche for himself with films like "Aakrosh" and "Ardh Satya". He also entertained viewers with his comic timing in "Hera Pheri".
This is not the first time Nandita and Om Puri are facing problem. In 2009, when Nandita came out with a biography on her husband titled "Unlikely Hero: The Story Of Om Puri" highlighting some of his most private sexual incidents, it had upset the Padma Shri winner.
