Yet another Ollywood actor landed up in trouble as Odisha police arrested an actor on charges of defaming and intimidating a girl on social networking site.
Kharavel Nagar police arrested actor Anupam Panda and forwarded to court here today based on the complaint filed by the girl.
According to reports, Anupam befriended the girl on a social networking site in 2014 after which a relationship developed between the duo. However, the girl decided to move out the relationship after coming to know that the actor was married. While Anupam reportedly assured the complainant to marry her after divorcing his wife, the latter was in no mood to mend the ties and go ahead with it.
Following the breakup, the duped girl then distanced herself from Panda which he couldn’t take it. Enraged over this, he allegedly circulated their intimate photographs on social networking site and sent it to her family members. Besides, he also allegedly intimidated her.
Following this, the girl studying MBA in a city-based institution filed a complaint with the local police station here leading to his arrest.
Notably, Anupam Panda had played the lead character in ‘Flashback’ released in December 2015.
