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.
The matter was later also taken into consideration by the Maharashtra Women’s Commission as Tanushree had alleged them of not helping her in the case, and being involved with Nana Patekar in giving him a ‘bogus’ clean-chit.
In the case over sexual harassment filed by her under #MeToo, Tanushree did not appear before the Commission despite summons.

According to DNA, she sent her complaints through a third person. Vijaya Rahatkar, Chairperson of The Women’s Commission, told DNA, “After the complaint made by Tanushree, the Commission sent a notice to the people related to the case. The victim was also required to come directly and give information about her complaint, which did not take place. The process for actor Nana Patekar’s clean chit has begun, after the report was submitted by the police in the court. The court received the B summary report (no evidence in support of the claim) and began the process accordingly. After the report was released, Tanushree has been given a notice period.”
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.
