Mumbai Police classifies Tanushree Dutta's MeToo case against Nana Patekar as ‘maliciously false’

Tanushree Dutta who had alleged that she was sexually harassed by actor Nana Patekar on a film's set in 2008 has been given B summary from the Mumbai police. Mumbai Police has classified her MeToo case against Nana Patekar as maliciously false. 

Nana Patekar must be relieved as the Lower Court of Mumbai has stated that no proof against him has been found and so, they have dismissed all allegations of Tanushree. According to the police, they have so far recorded the statements of 12 to 15 witnesses, including actress Daisy Shah, who was assistant to choreographer Ganesh Acharya back then. The witnesses are mainly backstage dancers and other workers who were present on set during the song's shoot. Police sources had earlier also said that none of their statements corroborated Tanushree's statement and the sexual harassment allegations made by her against Nana. Daisy had recorded her statement in November last year, and as per sources, she told the cops that she was unable to recall the incident.

For the unversed, Tanushree had last year started the Me Too movement and accused Nana of sexual harassment charges. The actress had stirred a wave in Bollywood and held several press conferences and media interaction sessions to discuss the incident. Tanushree had then registered a complaint at the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai but the police did not seem satisfied with the charges she had put. Now, the police has classified her case as untrue.
