Kanak news coverage sheds more light
Local media powerhouse, Kanak News, a prominent 24×7 news and current affairs channel, has been at the forefront of the ongoing coverage. As they report, beyond the fake news saga, Sheetal Patra has filed a complaint with the Laxmisagar police in the capital city. Her allegations? Sexual and mental harassment by Dayanidhi Dahima, filmmaker and owner of Dayanidhi Entertainment.
The accusations by Sheetal Patra unveiled
In her complaint, Patra detailed that during their relationship in 2019, Dahima took photographs of her without her consent. These photos later became tools for blackmail. Dahima allegedly threatened to disclose these images to her mother and acquaintances if she did not follow his orders.
Adding fuel to the fire, Dahima demanded that Patra return all her professional earnings from projects they collaborated on. Failure to do so, she alleged, would result in him releasing the photos to the public. But the allegations don’t stop there. Patra recounted a disturbing incident where Dahima physically assaulted her at her college, tearing her uniform and causing public humiliation.
