According to India Today,contradictory to the previous reports about legendary actor Om Puri’s death caused due to massive cardiac arrest, it has now being revealed that he was intoxicated at the time of his death.
The actor’s driver and producer Khalid Kidwai were last seen with the deceased, and Oshiwara Police handling the investigations have spoken to both. Kidwai, Om’s close friend revealed to the police that the actor had consumed alcohol the night before his death and had wanted to meet his son Ishaan but it didn’t happen. Apparently, Puri was emotional during the evening but he doesn’t think that there is anything suspicious about his death,said Kidwai.
Injury on the head of the dead body raised suspicion about Om Puri due to a fall before his death. Although the initial cause for Om Puri’s death was said to be a heart attack, the preliminary postmortem report suggests that he did not die of ‘natural causes’. Interrogations with Om Puri’s wife Nandita Puri did not reveal anything that would need further investigation.
Veteran actor Om Puri passed away on Friday morning at the age of 66. The Bollywood industry had come together to express their grief for the loss of this gifted actor.
