Another Complaint Filed Against Actor Om Puri For Allegedly Insulting Soldiers

Jaipur: Another complaint has been filed against actor Om Puri at Jaipur’s Gandhi Nagar police station for allegedly disrespecting soldiers during a television show.

The complaint was filed by the Akhil Bhartiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) worker Shankar Gora yesterday, Assistant Sub Inspector Subhash Chand said.

The complainant alleged that the actor had insulted the Indian soldiers by passing derogatory remarks and that a case of sedition be filed against him, he said.

“We are looking into the complaint,” Mr Chand said, adding that no police case has been registered in this regard. A complaint was filed against the actor at Andheri police station in Maharashtra on October 4.

A TV channel had called Mr Puri to join a debate about the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association’s (IMPPA) indefinite ban on Pakistani artistes from working in Indian projects after the Uri attack.
