The Mumbai police have filed a closure report in the sexual harassment case filed by Tanushree Dutta against Nana Patekar due to lack of evidence. However, her lawyer says that they will challenge the police’s closure report.
The actress started the #MeeToo movement accusing Nana Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of Horn OK Pleasss in the year 2009. Now the case has taken another twist where the police have filed a closure report in court on the grounds that there is a ‘no prima facie case against Nana Patekar’.
Lawyer Sujay Kantawala, reportedly, said, “Under the criminal jurisdiction, the investigating agency is the police. Now we have a closure report on which the complainant can file a protest report. If in any case the police files closure reports, the complainant can still pursue the whole thing and take it to a logical conclusion. It will show as to how convinced she is of her own case and if she wants to pursue this.”
In an official statement by ANI, “The Mumbai Police files a B summary report in the case. A ‘B Summary report’ is when the police cannot find evidence in support of the complaint and are unable to continue the investigation.”
Tanushree’s lawyer, reportedly, said, “We have not received any official communication from the police yet. However, we will challenge the closure report.”
Earlier as well, the cops were unable to find any evidence against Nana Patekar after recording statements of 12 to 15 witnesses. Actress Daisy Shah was also one of the witnesses who then was an assistant choreographer during the song’s shoot.
