Recently, Mumbai Police filed a closure report in the alleged sexual harrasment case lodged by Tanushree Dutta against Bollywood actor Nana Patekar. Now, Tanushree Dutta will file a protest petition against the clean chit given to Nana Patekar in the #MeToo case.
A B-Summary report was filed by the Oshiwara police station. Tanushree Dutta has opposed the same. She is represented by advocate Nitin Satpute at Railway Mobile Court in Andheri
The case was closed by the Mumbai police after they reportedly did not find enough evidence in the matter.
"The court has granted her time to file a protest petition against the B-Summary report. Tanushree's legal team was present, but not a single officer from the Oshiwara police station was in the court room at the time of hearing. The case has been adjourned to September 7," Satpute told IANS on Sunday.
In June, Mumbai Police spokesperson, Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath Shinge had told IANS: "Yes, we have filed a B-Summary Report before the court."
Tanushree had alleged that Nana Patekar made “crores of rupees” through Naam Foundation, enough to squash any case against him.
The case was closed by the Mumbai police after they reportedly did not find enough evidence in the matter. Lack of evidence means that they had no grounds to further investigate the case. Satpute had said that they would challenge the police move in this matter.
Tanushree Dutta had lodged the complaint against Nana Patekar in September 2018 accusing him of allegedly sexually harassing her over a decade ago, in 2008 during a shoot, but he had stoutly denied the charges levelled by her.
Earlier, Tanushree had also spoken to The Quint about how and why she feels like the case had been compromised. Tanushree had alleged that Nana Patekar made “crores of rupees” through Naam Foundation, enough to squash any case against him.
