Police drop case that triggered India’s #Metoo movement
Tanushree Dutta had accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment
13 June, 2019, 20:59
Former Miss Universe contestant Tanushree Dutta first alleged in 2008 that Patekar had touched her inappropriately during the making of a romantic comedy the same year.
The publication reported that the Mumbai Police has filed a closure report in court stating that Dutta's allegation case lacks of evidence against Patekar. She said, "What was the rush to file a B summary report when all of my witnesses have not even recorded their statements yet??"
"The B Summary report has been submitted before the concerned court", Shailesh Pasalwar, senior inspector at the Oshiwara police station, told Mid-day.
"Yes, we have filed a B-Summary Report before the court", Mumbai Police spokesperson, Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath Shinge told IANS. "The police have not investigated the case properly so we are opposing summary reports and also going to file writ petition before the Bombay High Court", the lawyer added.
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 past year when she had visited India. However, he also affirmed that if the complainant wants, they can definitely challenge the closure report and pursue the case further until it reaches a logical conclusion. Many witnesses' statements are not yet recorded.
She had also named choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Samee Siddhiqui and director of the film Rakesh Sarang in her complaint.
Tanushree was shooting the song Nathani (later performed in the film by Rakhi Sawant). However, Nana Patekar came to the set and allegedly got an "intimate" step added into the dance sequence with him and Tanushree.
Speaking of the case, Tanushree Dutta continues to support many Me Too cases that came forward after she made a decision to speak up about it. Nana misbehaved and intimidated her on the sets.
She further added, "But the proof is often in the pudding and a gentle reminder to the Indian public to watch the video of my vehicle being mercilessly attacked and broken while me and my family tried to escape from these monsters on Horn Ok Pleassss set 10 years ago". Janice Sequiera narrated on Twitter how she, a cub reporter with Aaj Tak and Headlines Today at the time, had witnessed goons on the set preventing Tanushree and her parents from leaving. However, Tanushree can fill a protest report if she is unhappy with the proceedings.
