Kendrapara: Police last night have apprehended Kendrapara Credit Co-Operative Society president, Pramod Kumar Sahu, in connection with alleged harassment of a lady employee.
According to sources, a police team led by Additional SP B Gagarin Mohanty arrived at Sahu’s Baniamal-based residence late last night and detained him.
While he was immediately interrogated regarding the incident last night itself, on Monday morning he was taken to a hospital for a medical test.
He is likely to be produced in court today, sources said.
Notably, a lady employee of the cooperative society had approached the Town Police lodging complaint of sexual harassment by Sahu on April 30 this year. While initially, cops refused to file a case, the woman was forced to move to a sub-divisional judicial magistrate (SDJM) court. Acting on the directives of the SDJM court, the Town Police registered a case three months later, sources said.
