Bhubaneswar: Controversial film producer Sanjay Nayak aka Nayak was arrested Saturday by Kharvel Nagar police for assaulting an women journalist on Friday.

ACP Manas Gadnayak on Saturday informed that before being arrested he was brought to Kharavel Nagar Police station for questioning.

Film producer Tutu Nayak was again in news Friday for allegedly slapping a lady journalist here.

As per reports, Nayak, who was attending a new Odia movie’s premiere show in Bhubaneswar Friday, allegedly slapped the lady reporter on her face and back when she was reporting the event.

The victim has lodged a complaint against Nayak at Kharvel Nagar police station.

Nayak, however, said, “The allegation is false… I was in a hurry to go to attend another new Odia movie’s screening at Maharaja theatre here. As she was standing on the middle of the gate, I mildly patted her back asking her to give me space. She is like my younger sister. I didn’t beat her. If I hurt her, I am sorry for that.”

Earlier, actress Prakruti Mishra and Jasmine Rath had lodged a casting couch allegation against producer Nayak recently.

Earlier in the day, members of Odisha Women in Media (OWM) called on Bhubaneswar DCP Prateek Singh and submitted a memorandum demanding a fair probe in this connection.
