Bhubaneswar, Nov 3:

Police on Saturday arrested Ollywood producer Tutu Nayak for allegedly slapping a woman journalist in Bhubaneswar yesterday.


According to reports, the producer has been sent to judiciary custody after his bail plea was rejected by a local court here.


Earlier in the day, Kharvel Nagar Police brought Nayak to the police station as the producer failed to appear voluntarily after being summoned.


Prior to his arrest, the State Commission for Women registered a case against Nayak in this connection. 


The female journalist, identified as Debasmita Rout, in her complaint alleged that the producer slapped her and hurled filthy language at her while she was in a film hall to cover an event today. 

While speaking to the media, the female journalist said “Today, I came to a film hall to cover the release of an Odia film. I was at the entrance to get the bites of the artistes. He was then passing through the entrance. If I was standing on the pathway, he should have asked me to make way. Instead of that he slapped me on my cheek from behind. When I turned around, my boom and phone fell on the ground.”
