Cuttack: In a noteworthy relief to Papu Pom Pom (Tattwa Prakash Satpathy), the Odisha high Court allowed bail to him and his partner Gitu (Pradipta Swain) today.
The high court yesterday reserved the decision in the wake of finishing its hearing on the bail appeal of the actor and his associate in alleged casting couch case against him.
Accused of sexually exploiting a minor girl on the pretext of giving her a break in movies, Papu along with his aide had been arrested on June 30 from an apartment in Puri.
Khordha District and Sessions Court on July 11 had rejected his bail plea. Later, he had moved High Court on July 27 seeking bail, but the hearing could not take place as the police had not submitted the case diary (CD) in the matter.
