Post Mortem reports reveal Om Puri did not die a natural death

10th January 2017

Bollywood mourned the sudden demise of veteran renowned actor Om Puri, who died on January 6, 2017 due to a massive heart attack. However, his post-mortem report has a different story to tell. It is now revealed that the actor did not die a natural death and was found lying on the floor with severe head injury. Producer Khalid Kidwai was by the actor's side just a few hours before his death.

A leading daily quoted him saying as, "Om Puri wanted to meet his son Ishan on Thursday evening. So we (Kidwai and Om Puri) went to Trishul building where his ex-wife Nandita lives with Ishan but were unable to meet them as both Nandita and Ishan had gone for a party. Om Puri then had an argument over the phone with Nandita and asked them to come soon as he wanted to meet his son."

One of the senior officer who is investigating the case said, "As Khalid Kidwai was with Om Puri since afternoon to hours before his death, we recorded his statement. We will corroborate this piece of information with Nandita's statement. Only then can we make any conclusion."
