Me Too: Tanushree Dutta vs Nana Patekar case has been closed!

No proof to prosecute Nana Patekar in sexual harassment case: Police

As per current reports, the police have made a decision to close the Tanushree Dutta, Nana Patekar sexual harassment case after they failed to receive any evidence against the actor.

"I have not received any official information from Oshiwara police station about classification of offence (summary report) from the police on behalf of Tanushree Dutta".

In her original statement against Patekar, Tanushree had said, "Everyone knows about Nana Patekar that he has always been disrespectful towards women. We can oppose it in court, and after hearing, if the court is satisfied then again it can again direct police to reinvestigate or investigate further".

Stating that she was neither surprised nor shocked at the statement given by police to the court, Dutta questioned the rush on part of the police to file a B-summary report when all witness statements had not been recorded.

Known as the flag bearer of the Me Too movement, Tanushree Dutta lashed out on Nana Patekar and revealed about an incident where she accused the veteran actor of sexual harassment on the sets of the film Horn Ok Pleassss previous year when she had visited India.

Ms. Dutta, whose complaint against Mr. Patekar in October past year sparked a nationwide '#MeToo' movement on social media, expressed disappointment over the "clean chit" to him and called the police and the legal system "corrupt".


Mr Patekar had rejected the allegations and had sent a legal notice to his former co-star, also demanding a written apology. Being a woman in India this is something we all have got used to.

Ms. Dutta said she failed to understand how the "B summary" report was filed when statements of witnesses were not yet recorded. She also alleged that her witnesses "have been silenced by intimidation" and that "fake witnesses" have been propped up.

She had accused Nana Patekar's PR team of spreading false news and clarified that the investigation was still underway.

Tanushree's reference to Nana Patekar sending goons to harass her was corroborated by a journalist who reportedly witnessed the incident 10 years ago. She alleged that Patekar inappropriately touched her during the filming of the song sequence despite her making it clear she wasn't comfortable performing "lewd, vulgar or uncomfortable steps". According to her, choreographer Ganesh Acharya had also stepped aside "obediently" when Nana tried to do this.

The accused were booked under IPC Sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 509 (word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman), but no arrest was made so far.
