As Bollywood celebrities mourn his death, one of the Pakistani news channels has come up with a shocking claim.

Bol TV, a Pakistani news channel aired a programme ‘Aise Nahi Chalega’ hosted by Pakistani politician and broadcaster, a man who is a horrible excuse for a journalist, Amir Liaqut.

In a 28-minute video that is being shared on the social media, the anchor claims that Om Puri has been murdered by Narendra Modi and Ajit Doval.


Liaqat, told his audience that Modi and Doval murdered Puri for several reasons including his backing of Pakistani artistes, his “fondness” for Pakistan, and his “interest” in Islam.

Om Puri was murdered,” he said on the show. “Doval, the right hand man of Modi, is doing such work. Modi is a dirty man and his work is very dirty.”

Liaqat then showed a clip of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal lashing out at Modi. The anchor also claimed that Modi had harbored a grudge against Puri because he had acted in the movie Dev which was based on the 2002 Gujarat Riots, when Modi was chief minister of the state.

Doval and another agent entered Puri’s house and killed him either by strangling the actor or suffocating him a with a pillow, Liaqat said. The anchor also claimed that alcohol was forcibly poured into his mouth before he was strangled.

Liaqat told his audience that a week before Puri died, Doval had summoned the actor to his office and abused him, and told him to go to the village of Nitin Yadav, a soldier who was killed in the Uri terrorist attack, and apologize. He also said that Puri was stripped naked and beaten.

Fawad Khan and Salman Khan are next on Doval’s hit list, the Pakistani channel claimed.
