Bhubaneswar: A local court here on Monday rejected the bail plea of actor Tatwa Prakash Satapathy alias Papu Pom Pom, who is in jail for his alleged involvement in sexually exploiting a minor girl.
The Khurdha District and Sessions Court rejected the bail plea.
However, it is yet to be known on which ground the court rejected the bail application of the actor, said sources.
Earlier on Monday, the court had reserved its verdict on the bail plea of Papu Pom Pom and his aide Pradip Swain.
Papu Pom Pom and Swain appeared before the court through video conferencing during the hearing on Monday. The minor’s father and mother appeared in person before the court.
Notably, the court had posted the bail plea hearing on Monday after police sought time to submit the case diary with the court.
Sources said Papu and his aide would move to Orissa High Court seeking bail on the sexual harassment case.
