The shocking incident was caught on camera where he was found physically assaulting his wife. The controversy allegedly erupted after his wife caught him with another woman.

Commenting on the video, Purushottam said, "We've been married for 32 years, in 2008 she had complained against me. But the point is, since 2008 she has been living in my house, enjoying all facilities and travelling abroad on my expenses."

He further said, "If my nature is abusive then she should've complained earlier. This is a family dispute, not a crime. I am neither a violent person nor a criminal. It is unfortunate that I have to go through this. My wife stalks me and has put cameras in the house."
