Debasmita had yesterday alleged that she was slapped by producer Tutu Nayak. She filed a police complaint. Based on the complaint, cops initiated an investigation into the matter. They verified the footages of the CCTV cameras installed at the spot of the incident.

Tutu later clarified on the incident and tendered an apology to the journo. Although it did not look like a case of assault, Tutu drew flak for ‘inappropriate touch’ to a woman in public.
