Singer Sourin Bhatt Gets Interim Protection from Orissa HC in Harassment Case

Cuttack: The Orissa High Court has granted interim protection to singer Sourin Bhatt in response to a harassment case filed by a woman. The court also directed Sourin to cooperate with the investigation and appear before the police as needed. The next hearing is scheduled for August 25, and the woman’s statement will be recorded under Section 164.

Sourin had applied for anticipatory bail on June 26, denying the allegations and stating they were attempts to defame him. His family members accused the woman of blackmailing him, acknowledging their friendship but holding her at fault. Sourin has been untraceable since the complaint was filed at Mahila police station in Cuttack.

The police previously visited Sourin’s residence in Kolkata on June 22 but couldn’t question him as he was in New Delhi. His family assured the police he would contact them upon returning to Kolkata. Previous attempts to contact him failed as his phone was switched off. The police also served a notice on the landlord of his rented house in Cuttack.

The woman alleged that Sourin exploited her with false promises of a singing break, marriage, and financial support, extorting Rs 10 lakh from her. The case remains under investigation.
