Here’s big sigh of relief for Nana Patekar, who was accused by Tanushree Dutta of sexual misconduct under #MeToo movement has finally got a clean chit in the case.
Reportedly, the police have now closed the case on the grounds of ‘no prima facie case against the actor.’
The police stated that they are unable to continue the investigation against Nana due to non-availability of evidence against him.
Nana Patekar gets clean chit
The Mumbai Police reportedly filed a ‘B’ summary report, giving a clean chit to Patekar. A ‘B’ summary report is filed when there isn’t enough evidence for the police to continue an investigation, according to Asian News International.
However, Dutta’s lawyer Nitin Satpute, said he had not received any official communication from the police. “We will challenge the closure report,” he told Times Now.
In September last year, Tanushree Dutta alleged that Nana Patekar misbehaved with her on the set of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2008 while shooting for a special dance number.
A case was registered against Patekar and three others at Oshiwara police station, which include choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Samee Siddique and director Rakesh Sarang, under 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) of the IPC.
