Complaints filed against Om Puri for making anti-army remarks
Lucknow: Bollywood veteran Om Puri has come into more trouble after complaints have been lodged against him on Tuesday in Lucknow and Mumbai for making anti-army comments.
A group of advocates have sought a case against Om Puri for hurting the sentiments of Indians by insulting Indian army. Complaint has been lodged at Vibhuti Khand police station in Lucknow.
Also a complaint was filed by the president of a local organisation in Andheri police station in Mumbai. The complainant alleged that Om Puri had insulted Indian Army and the nation and demanded an FIR against him for sedition under section 124 (A) of the IPC.
Om Puri, however, has apologized for his remark which he made during a TV debate regarding the indefinite ban imposed on Pakistani artists by the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Associations (IMPPA).
He said, "I am very embarrassed at what I said and I deserve punishment, not forgiveness. I first apologise to Uri attack martyrs’ family, if at all they will forgive me, I apologise to the whole country, the army. I know its not justified that you say so much and then think a sorry will make it right.”
