A formal complaint of ‘casting couch’ was lodged against Papu Pom Pom at the Mahila Police station in Bhubaneswar, inviting trouble for the leading Ollywood comedy actor.
An NGO – Friends Foundation Trust filed the complaint on behalf of the victim with the Mahila Police station alleging the actor of sexually exploiting and intimidating a minor girl after promising to get her acting roles in movies.
Apart from Papu Pom Pom, one of his aides Pradipta Swain alias Gitu has also been named in the complaint. The victim, a Class-IX student in a private school of Bhubaneswar, approached a television channel earlier in the day bringing light to her plight.
While Papu, as usual, was unavailable for comments, the police assured that necessary steps would be taken as per the provisions of the law.
