Recently, Tanushree Dutta case of sexual harassment against Nana Patekar has been closed by the Mumbai Police.
The B- Summary report filed by the Oshiwara police in Mumbai said that Tanushree’s complaint could have been lodged to seek revenge.
Now, Tabushree called the report ‘false’ and ‘malicious’. In a recent statement, Tanushree has expressed her disappointment over the report and said that it doesn’t take into account the evidence that was submitted and could have proved that sexual harassment at workplace did take place.
Tanushree Dutta calls Mumbai Police’s report in Nana Patekar case is full of lies
She said, “The Mumbai police’s B summary report that exonerates Nana Patekar and the other accused in the Horn ok please harassment case is a false and malicious report. It is a report that does not take into consideration the overwhelming evidence that was submitted to them which was actually quite enough to prove sexual harassment at workplace and make arrests provided it was their intention to do so. This report is corrupt and full of lies and intended to repair public perception of the accused so that they can get back to work in Bollywood,”
The actress further added, “Don’t be surprised to hear any movie announcements soon as this clean chit was possibly bought with crores of rupees to resurrect Nana Patekar’s failing Bollywood career. The law and order and judiciary in India is clearly a big failure as almost all the #metoo accused are still roaming free and getting reinstated in their jobs and the women who called them out get questioned on their integrity. This is a very bad example for the masses. Age old saga in our country as history repeats itself over and over again!!.”
Tanushree also said that she cannot fight this battle alone. “I will stand by my statement forever but I’m done with this fight for now. Nitin Satpute, my advocate in Mumbai will be updating everyone on the legal updates on the matter!! One person, especially a woman alone cannot fight against an entire corrupt system. Unless others rise with me, I will not be able to continue to push back against this injustice. So the choice now is in your hands as my conscience is clear. I did the best I could and fought against evil as best as I could. I will have my reward in this life or the next but what about you?? I will leave this past behind me like a bad dream and still sleep well but what about you?? I will be able to face myself in the mirror and God someday but what about you??”
In September last year, Dutta had alleged that Patekar misbehaved with her on the sets of ‘Horn Ok Please’ in 2008 while shooting for a special dance number for the movie, and went on to file an FIR against the ‘Welcome’ star. However, Patekar refuted all allegations.
