Cuttack: Actress Laxmipriya Behera's (Nikita) husband Lipan Sahu's bail was rejected by Cuttack SDJM's court on Tuesday.

Lipan, who was arrested on Monday evening, was produced before the magistrate today. After sustained interrogation, the Chauliaganj police had arrested Lipan and pressed murder charges on him.

Government pleader, Biswajit Baral said that the police have charged Lipan with murder, murder conspiracy and torture.

"The bail moved by his lawyer was cancelled by the court since it is a 'sensitive' murder case. He has been sent in judicial custody to Choudwar jail. There has been no plea for police remand so far," Baral added.

On the other hand, Lipan's lawyer, Bidyadhar Pradhan said that it was a case of suicide which is being 'coloured' as murder.

“As murder charges have been pressed in this case, the SDJM does not have power to grant bail. We will move the bail plea before the Sessions Court on Wednesday," Pradhan added.
