A complaint has been filed against Bollywood actor Om Puri for allegedly insulting army jawans on a TV show.
Police told PTI that the complaint has been filed by a president of a local organization in the Andheri police station. “We have received an application (complaint) from a person against Om Puri. Mumbai police is inquiring the matter. Further action will be taken based on the probe”, said Deputy Commissioner of Police Ashok Dudhe.
During a recent debate on a TV show, Puri had asked who told Indian soldiers to pick up weapons.
The debate was regarding the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association’s (IMPPA) indefinite ban on Pakistani artistes from working in Indian projects after the Uri attack.
Puri had said, “Who had asked soldiers to join the army? Who told them to pick the weapons?”
The complainant also alleged that the actor had insulted the Indian Army and the nation and demanded to register an FIR against him for sedition under section 124 (A) of the IPC, police said.
