Tanushree Dutta Counters Cops' 'No Evidence' Claim, To File Protest Petition Against Nana Patekar's Clean Chit In Sexual Harassment Case

Darpan News Desk IANS, 08 Jul, 2019
  • Tanushree Dutta Counters Cops' 'No Evidence' Claim, To File Protest Petition Against Nana Patekar's Clean Chit In Sexual Harassment Case

Actor Tanshuree Dutta opposed the Mumbai Police's claim that it has no evidence to prosecute actor Nana Patekar in a molestation case filed by her against him. She refuted the claim before a Mumbai court.


On June 12, the suburban Oshiwara police filed a "B Summary" report before a metropolitan magistrate in Mumbai's Andheri.


A ''B-Summary'' report is filed when police do not find any evidence against the accused to file charges and seek trial.


The magistrate had then directed Ms Dutta to present her reply to the police's report.


Ms Dutta's advocate Nitin Satpute told the magistrate court on Saturday that they were opposing the police's ''B Summary'' report.


"The court has granted us time to file an affidavit or petition opposing the ''B Summary'' report of the police. The hearing in the case is now kept on September 7," Mr Satpute said.


Ms Dutta, in her complaint filed in October 2018, accused Nana Patekar of harassing and misbehaving with her while shooting a song on the sets of the film "Horn Ok Pleasss" in 2008.


Her complaint against Nana Patekar sparked a nationwide ''#MeToo'' movement on social media.


In the complaint, Ms Dutta also alleged that during the shooting of the song sequence, Nana Patekar inappropriately touched her even after she clearly mentioned that she would not perform lewd, vulgar or uncomfortable steps.


Based on her complaint, a case was registered against Nana Patekar and three others - choreographer Ganesh Acharya, film's producer Samee Siddiqui and director Rakesh Sarang - for allegedly molesting Ms Dutta on the sets of the movie.


The ''B Summary'' report also absolved Ganesh Acharya, Samee Siddiqui and Rakesh Sarang of the charges.


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