Cuttack, Nov 18:

The Odisha High Court today rejected the bail plea of self-proclaimed godman Sarathi Baba alias Santosh Raul in the case filed against him by the controversial female medico.


The court had yesterday kept its verdict reserved after hearing arguments of both sides.

Sarathi’s counsel had argued before the court that Sarathi has been kept in jail for over 15 months without trial and hence he should be granted bail.

Notably, the medico had filed an FIR against four persons accusing them of blackmailing her for over four months and forcing her to accompany Sarathi to Hyderabad where she spent three nights with him at a hotel in the first week of July last year.
