Send that ‘stick’ for forensic test, demands Om Puri

The official version says that Om Puri is ‘absconding’ after estranged wife Nandita filed a police complaint accusing him of domestic violence. But TOI tracked down the actor to quiz him about his headline grabbing personal life. Excerpts from the interview.

Your estranged wife Nandita has accused you of physical violence…
She has gone to town saying that I hit her with a stick. Pray, who keeps sticks at home? There is a bamboo cane at home, a decorative item purchased by Nandita. I am ready to send that for forensic tests. She complained to the cops at 4.30 pm claiming that I had beaten her up at 9.30 am. What made her wait for seven hours?

Are you seeking anticipatory bail?
Yes. What else can I do? Our legal system is soft on women in such cases. But I have nothing to fear. I have been in the film industry for 35 years and everyone including the spot-boys will vouch for my character. Six weeks ago, Nandita filed a criminal case against me and my ex-wife Seema Kapoor accusing us of trying to kidnap our son Ishaan. The very next day she backtracked saying she ‘suspects’ that we will kidnap him. That just explains her state of mind.

What transpired on August 22?
We simply had an argument. She said I had to shell out Rs 10,000 to ten girls who had tied a rakhi to my son, Ishaan. I handed over Rs 10,000. Then she said that our maid had also tied a rakhi and she had given her a mobile phone worth Rs 3,000 and she demanded that I pay for that too. I put my foot down. The next thing I knew I was accused of domestic violence. I never thought our marriage will come to such a sorry pass.

What went wrong in the marriage?
We’ve not been getting along for the past 15 years. We are two very different people. While my roots are absolutely rural, her tastes are very elitist. Yes, I smoke a few cigarettes and have an occasional drink. But that’s it. I don’t spend on expensive brands. I don’t need foreign holidays. She has taken 35 holidays abroad in 15 years. She dropped in on every foreign shoot and I had to pay through my nose every time.

Nandita says you’ve stopped paying for household expenses. Is that true?
Rubbish! I am paying for everything in her and Ishaan’s life and I am not complaining. Be it electricity bills, telephone bills, chaffeur or servants. But Nandita does not know how to control her expenses. It was her idea to sign a MOU, then I gave her joint ownership of three flats and transferred two-thirds of the contents of my bank account to her and Ishaan, but she still wants more. She refuses to sign divorce papers because she doesn’t want to give away a single penny. Moreover, she always wants to be known as Mrs Om Puri.

How much has this affected Ishaan?
I try my best to keep him out of this. But he is totally under Nandita’s influence. Yesterday I tried to reach him on the domestic help’s phone, but I overheard him saying, ‘Tell him I have a sore throat’. Now I am going to request the Court to provide me access to him on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

You were recently on a holiday with Nandita and Ishan. Pictures suggested everything was fine…
I wish it was true. I wanted to enjoy a holiday with my son but Nandita tagged along.

How has Nandita behaved during this conflict?
She is very aggressive and uses abusive language against me. She has grabbed my collar on more than one occasion. I try to remain calm and just walk out of the house. But she stands by the door blocking my way and if I try to make my way past her, she says that I am attacking her. She went to Seema’s building and screamed expletives.

Would you like to stay with Seema after the divorce?
I can go and live with anybody, but first let me get out of this mess.

That doesn’t answer my question.
Yes. I would like to live with Seema, I like her. But if that happens, it would happen only when I have legally parted ways with Nandita.

Nandita says you are in an adulterous relationship with Seema. Is there truth in the allegation?
At the age of 64? I can’t write properly, my signature has changed because my hands shake. How will I indulge in adultery? And let me tell you Nandita is responsible for my ill health too. We were in Punjab, when I suffered a neuro problem. The doctors told her to fly me back to Mumbai/Delhi and get a spine surgery done but she ignored the doctors and did not inform me too. Was her holiday more important than my health? I got the surgery done when a doctor in Mumbai pressed the panic button but it was too late.

Have you lost out on work because of problems at home?
Workwise, I won’t blame Nandita. Perhaps age has caught up with me. Also stars like Amitabh and Rishi have started doing character roles. But I did a nice film Trafficker in Bangkok recently. And I am doing a film with Spielberg.

Man strangulates wife for demanding divorce

Santosh Sonawane, TNN | Aug 28, 2013, 07.27 AM IST

NASHIK: The Satpur police arrested Virendra Giri (34) on charges of strangulating his wife to death on Saturday night in between Mahirwani and Gangapur, near Satpur. Giri was arrested by the Satpur police on Tuesday afternoon, after he confessed to the crime.
The body of Giri’s 28-year-old wife Lalita Virendra Giri of Shramik Nagar, Satpur, was found on the Mahirawani-Gangapur Road on Sunday evening. Subsequently, the Satpur police sent the body for post-mortem, while her pictures were circulated in the police chowkis of Satpur for identification. The post-mortem report revealed that the woman was strangled.

Giri identified his wife when policemen of the Shramik Nagar chowki showed the photograph around in the area under their jusrisdiction. He told the cops that his wife had left him about two months back and was living with a person named Vikram Singh in Ambad. Singh (32), an industrial worker from Ambad, was picked up for interrogation on Sunday evening. During the course of interrogation, Singh told that the police that Lalita Giri had visited her husband at the couple’s Shramik Nagar residence in Satpur on Saturday evening. Giri was called for interrogation on Monday. He confessed to killing his wife on Tuesday and was subsequently arrested.

"Virendra Giri, a native of Uttar Pradesh, told the police that she had an illicit relationship with Singh and wanted to marry him. Thus, she was pressing for divorce over the past few months," A T Powar, senior police inspector of the Satpur police station, told TOI.

The couple had been married for 12 years and have four children, including three daughters. Powar said that Virendra Giri was a driver working on a contract basis and would often be out of town. Lalita Giri was acquainted with Vikram Singh when they resided in Shivaji Nagar of Satpur. The Giri couple moved to Shramik Nagar a couple of years back.

Powar said Giri claimed that Lalita had come to demand divorce on Saturday evening. However, Giri had urged her to stay with her family. When she did not listen to her husband and left home on Saturday evening, Giri followed her and strangled her to death.

Marriage deal no alibi to let off rapists: Apex court

‘Compromise With Survivor Not Relevant To Punishment’

TIMES NEWS NETWORK

New Delhi: In a landmark judgment laying down guidelines for courts in awarding punishment for rape, the Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that a rapist’s offer to marry the rape survivor could never be a ground for letting off the guilty lightly.

The court said no compromise between rapists and rape survivors could lessen the gravity of the offence, in a clear disapproval of the tendency among some courts to impose lighter sentences on convicts after they offer to marry the survivor.

It warned that if a court got swayed by such a compromise to impose a sentence lesser than that prescribed in law, it would reflect “stark insensitivity to the need for proportionate punishment to be imposed in such cases”.

Abench of Chief Justice P Sathasivam and Justice Ranjana P Desai and Justice Ranjan Gogoi said, “The law can be summarized to the effect that punishment should always be proportionate and commensurate to the gravity of offence.”

The court cited two major reasons for not taking into account a compromise — one, it would encourage the convicts to pressurize rape survivors to reach a compromise and two, rape was a crime against society.

Writing the judgment, Justice Sathasivam said, “Religion, race, caste, economic or social status of the accused or victim or the long pendency of the criminal trial or offer of the rapist to marry the victim or the victim is married and settled in life cannot be construed as special factors for reducing the sentence.”The bench refused to consider the request of Balu Ram and Shimbhu, who were convicted in a 1995 gang-rape case from Haryana and sentenced to 10 years imprisonment, to reduce their sentence to the period already spent in prison. They cited a compromise with the rape survivor, who they said had no objection to their early release from prison.

The bench said the statute provided for a minimum sentence of 10 years imprisonment to gang-rape convicts with a rider that in exceptional circumstances, the courts could reduce it. But compromise with rape survivors could not be cited as ground for leniency to those found guilty in gang-rape cases, it clarified.

“Rape is a non-compoundable offence and it is an offence against society and is not a matter to be left for the parties to compromise and settle. Since the court cannot always be assured that the consent given by the victim in compromising the case is a genuine consent, there is every chance that she might have been pressurized by the convicts or trauma undergone by her all the years might have compelled her to opt for a compromise,” the bench said.

“In fact, accepting this proposition will put an additional burden on the victim. The accused may use all his influence to pressurize her for a compromise. So, in the interest of justice and to avoid unnecessary pressure/harassment to the victim, it would not be safe in considering the compromise arrived at between the parties in rape cases to be a ground for the court to exercise discretionary power under the Indian Penal Code (to reduce sentence),” the court said.

“It is yet another opportunity to inform the subordinate courts and the HCs that despite stringent provisions for rape under Section 376 of IPC, many courts in the past have taken a softer view while awarding sentence for such a heinous crime,” the Supreme Court said.
