Even as the Mumbai Police recorded the statements of Om Puri’s driver Ram Mishra and producer Khalid Kidwai in connection with his death, a Pakistani TV anchor has been promulgating a conspiracy theory about what caused the veteran actor’s demise. According to a report on Mid-Day, Pakistani news channel Bol‘s anchor Amir Liaqat blames our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval for causing veteran actor Om Puri‘s death.
Om Puri was found dead in the kitchen of his Andheri apartment on Friday morning (6 January 2017). A heart attack is supposed to have been the cause of death, while the actor also sustained a minor head injury (caused presumably when he fell to the floor). Om, who was one of the few actors who took a stance against the ‘ban’ on Pakistani actors acting in Indian movies was viciously trolled and abused on national television. This seemed reason enough for Amir to claim that Om’s ‘pro-Pakistan’ status allegedly got PM Modi angry.
The anchor further said that the actor was forced to drink and when he was out of his senses, he was smothered to death by a pillow. The killer, apparently was an agent of Ajit Doval.
Its Really a pretty baseless and insensitive allegation.
