But turns out now that Om Puri did not require the anticipatory bail. The Versova police has informed the court that as the charges against the actor were bailable, he need not have to apply for anticipatory bail.

Post this, Om Puri withdrew the anticipatory bail application from the court and he was granted bail at the police station itself.

Initially, after Nandita’s complaint, the Versova police had booked Om Puri under Indian Penal Code sections 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of the peace).
