We are looking for Om Puri: Police

"When Nandita Puri had come to the police station, we sent her to Cooper Hospital and she also submitted a medical report post the check up," the police officer from Versova Police station told IANS.

"In her statement, she said that she had been hit with a stick by her husband. Ever since she had filed the case, we have been looking for him. There have been no developments so far as we are still looking for him," the officer added.

The couple had been facing problems in their relationship since Nandita come out with a biography on her husband - "Unlikely Hero: The Story Of Om Puri" in 2009 highlighting some of his most private sexual incidents.
