Journalist-columnist Nandita Puri, who filed a police complaint of domestic violence against her husband and actor Om Puri, Wednesday claimed he was lying when he said he was out of town when he allegedly beat her.

"All lies... He is lying and he was in Mumbai. After the incident, he left home and I think he stayed in some hotel. Factually, he is wrong. If you accuse someone, they deny it. He has accused the police force and judicial system. You can check his whereabouts, his phones, airline tickets... everything," Nandita told IANS.

Nandita lodged a complaint against him on Aug 23 at the Versova police station. On Tuesday, Om Puri denied the allegations, saying he was in Kolkata when he was alleged to have beaten her.

She added: "He didn't call me after the incident. He was wrong and he was absconding."

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. 

The revelations in the book had upset the 62-year-old Padma Shri awardee, known for his work in films like "Aakrosh" and "Ardh Satya". He has also entertained viewers with his comic timing in "Hera Pheri".
