- The incident happened during the shooting of the movie “Horn OK” in 2008
- In November 2018 Tanushree lodged FIR against Nana Patekar
Bollywood Desk The investigation of allegations of sexual harassment against Nana Patekar of Tanushree Dutta is now becoming weak. According to Oshiwara police,ever since Tanrishi filed an FIR – i.e., last seven months, she has not been able to bring any witnesses to support her claims. And those who gave statements did not match Tanushree’s words.
The case has happened so far
According to a report, in the case of Tanushree and Nana, police recorded statements of about 15 people. Among them was Daji Shah who was an assistant of Choreographer Ganesh Acharya of the horn ok movie. None of the witnesses could confirm Tanushree’s statements. Not even Daisy, could fully remember the incident.
A senior police official said that many came in to make a statement but no one could support the allegations leveled by Tanushree. The reason behind this was that they were unable to remember that incident. Some remembered the delay in shooting, but they do not remember anything related to Tanushree’s exploitation.
Because the case is 10 years old, it is taking time to track people present at the time of the incident. The official said that the statements of witnesses are very important to carry forward the investigation. Meanwhile, senior police officer Shailesh Pasalwar, refused to give any statement saying that the investigation is still at a critical step.
On this case, Tanushree claimed that the witnesses who have given the statement are friends of Nana and they will not accept the charges of sexual harassment. Tanushree had said – I do not need witnesses to prove that I was exploited. The mentality of the people is such that they will lie to save such criminals and prove the woman wrong.
Tanushree also alleged that the witnesses who wanted to speak in his favor threatened them. Tanushree said – Nana’s people are calling my supporters a threatening phone. But I still believe that all the accused will be punished because I am fighting this fight not for myself but for those who suffer and are silent.
