The Oshiwara police have recorded the statements of Mishra and film producer Khalid Kidwai in the matter and filed an accidental death report. They are now awaiting the forensic reports to understand the circumstances in which Puri could have died.
Following the recoding of his statement by the Oshiwara police, Om Puri’s driver of 24 years, Rampramod Mishra, has demanded that the police conduct a fair probe in his death.
Mishra said, "With his death, everything is over for me. I do not wish to work anymore. The police are investigating and I seek a fair probe… sab doodh ka doodh aur paani ka paani hone chahiye (everything should come out clearly)."
Mishra further added "I do not know what happened after I left for the day, but I can say that he was a person who would not hurt anyone,”
Day before to the death, Mishra had dropped him off at his Oakland Park building before leaving for home. Puri had asked him to reach by 7 am the next day as he wanted to complete formalities at the US embassy for his March event in America. Puri had also told him that he would then be going to Khandala and stay there for two days.
