Bollywood's veteran actor Om Puri, who was arrested on Saturday (August 31, 2013) for allegedly beating up his wife, was later released by the cops on bail. Reportedly, Puri was arrested after he surrendered before the police. The arrest took place, after his wife Nandita filed a case against the actor, for hitting her with a stick over an argument, that took place between the duo last week.
A police officer reportedly told a leading daily that Om Puri and his wife Nandita fought over their flat maintenance, following which Puri hit her with "a wooden stick in their Versova residence". According to the daily, the actor got booked under IPC sections 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of the peace).
As per the recent reports, Om Puri was granted bail today (September 1, 2013) on a bond of Rs. 10,000. Reportedly, earlier on Saturday, the sessions court disposed of the anticipatory bail application filed by Mr Puri, as his lawyer told the court that the actor wanted to withdraw the plea.
