Cuttack, Jan 11: In a fresh development in Sumit-Tapaswini’s marital dispute, Dr. Sumit Sahoo on Tuesday filed a petition in the Orissa High Court challenging the order of the Berhampur District and Sessions Court.
The district court had ordered that Tapaswini Dash will stay in Sumit’s paternal house in Bramahnagar in Berhampur. The court had also directed Sumit to pay Rs 17,000 every month as maintenance to Tapaswini.
Earlier on Monday, Sumit’s father Pramod Kumar Sahu also filed a petition before the Orissa High Court, seeking protection as he feels insecure to stay in the house. He has sought protection for himself and his family.
Pramod alleged that police did not take any action even though several women barged into his house on December 20.
Worth mentioning, on January 4, the District Court allowed Tapaswini to live at her in-law’s house with her husband Sumit Sahu. The court also directed Sumit to provide financial assistance of Rs 17,000 before the 10th of every month to Tapaswini Dash.
