Bhubaneswar, Jun 30:
Odisha police have arrested Tattwa Prakash Satapathy alias Papu Pom Pom accused of sexually exploiting a minor girl on the pretext of giving her a break in movies.
The actor-turned-politician was arrested barely hours after a top cop assured that the accused will be apprehended within 48 hours, police sources said.
However, police did not reveal the place of arrest and the circumstances under which the accused on the run was arrested.
Unconfirmed reports said that the accused has been arrested from Puri.
Interestingly, the arrest comes a day after the Biju Janata Dal expelled Papu from the party.
The demand for arrest of the Rangeela Toka-fame actor was increasing with each passing day with several political outfits and organisations hitting the streets.
Earlier in the day, the BJP Mahila Morcha had claimed that the actor was seen in Nimapara area in Puri district.
