Tanushree Dutta writes to the superior police, seeks an investigation by the crime branch
Actor Tanushree Dutta on Tuesday he urged the Mumbai police commissioner to order a new investigation into his accusation of sexual abuse against the actor Nana Patekar . Dutta demanded that the closing report submitted by the police, saying there was no evidence against Patekar, be discarded, and the Crime Branch should take over the case.
The suburban police in Oshiwara, who investigated the case, presented a summary report B in June of the Andheri metropolitan trial court in June this year. A summary report B, also called a closing report, is filed when the police find no evidence against the defendant to file a charge sheet. Dutta's complaint against Patekar in October 2018 had triggered a #I also movement, during which several personalities known for alleged sexual harassment were called.
Dutta's lawyer, Nitin Satpute, sent an email to police commissioner Sanjay Barve on Tuesday, seeking a new investigation by Crime Branch. The e-mail complaint claimed that the police did not investigate the alleged incident adequately or arrest Patekar either for fear or for the defendant's influence.
Police presented a summary report B despite the evidence provided by the plaintiff, he said. Dutta had accused Patekar of harassing her and misbehaving with her while filming a song on the sets of the movie 'Horn Ok Pleasss' in 2008.
Patekar denied all the accusations. Based on his complaint, a case was filed against Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya , the producer of the film Samee Siddiqui and the director Rakesh Sarang. But the police then gave them a clean token.
