The Mumbai Police on Thursday closed the sexual misconduct case against Nana Patekar which was filed by Tansuhree Dutta due to lack of evidence. The police filed a  'B Summary' report in the case. A 'B summary' report is filed when police cannot find evidence in support of the complaint and are unable to continue the investigation. Reacting to Nana Patekar's clean chit, Tanushree Dutta, who currently lives in the US, issued a statement. The actress labelled Nana Patekar and the Mumbai Police as 'corrupt'.  

Tanushree Dutta's statement read: "A corrupt police force and legal system giving a clean chit to an even more corrupt person Nana who has been accused even in the past of bullying, intimidation and harassment by several women in the film Industry. Our witnesses have been silenced by intimidation and fake witnesses have been put forth to weaken the case.What was the rush to file a B summary report when all of my witnesses have not even recorded their statements yet?? I'm neither shocked nor surprised. Being a woman in India this is something we all have got used to. I mean if rape-accused Alok Nath got a clean chit and returned to movies then surely it was not going to be difficult for harassment-accused Nana Patekar to get himself or shall we say buy himself a clean chit to continue to bully hapless young women."

She further added, "But the proof is often in the pudding and a gentle reminder to the Indian public to watch the video of my car being mercilessly attacked and broken while me and my family tried to escape from these monsters on Horn Ok  Pleassss set 10 years ago. After this if you still decide to watch their movies and support then it's your bad karma. You are corrupt people with no justice but God's justice will rain on you someday hopefully and will avenge for all the humiliation, insult, harassment, judgement and trauma I have had to endure in the last 10+ years because of this attitude."

"That is my hope finally. For a life without hope is like a candle without fire. I pray that I never have to deal with this kind of toxicity ever again in life. I'm tired of fighting alone against oppressors, bullies and a corrupt system.I have better things to do in life with my talent and skill set and I need to focus on those but please don't take this example to mean that you will not be heard when u speak up!! Continue to expose these creeps through social media and other platforms so that in future people would think twice before troubling an innocent young girl. I still believe that I will get justice and victory will be mine!! How..only time will tell."

Tanushree had accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss in 2009 while shooting for a dance number. Earlier, in May, reports of Nana Patekar getting a clean chit in the case were doing the rounds as the police could not furnish evidence against him. However, Tanushree had claimed back then that the reports were false. 

She had accused Nana Patekar's PR team of spreading false news and clarified that the investigation was still underway. The latest clean chit by the police means that they could not produce evidence against the 'Welcome' actor and have closed the case. However, Tanushree can fill a protest report if she is unhappy with the proceedings.

Her statement is great.I love this woman.

This is a God forsaken society.Read the news everyday,it just affirms this.But nevertheless Tanushree, you acheieved what no one else did, and at least rocked the boat.At least you weren't silent and at least whenever people look at Nana Patekar they will be reminded of your accusations. Your effort was not in vain.Stay strong and God bless.

She had spoken up ten years ago also but no one listened

Tanu----- you are genuine..Millions sitting silently and with no help and you are no exception.You had the guts to comet and speak openly and the rest suffering.
Don't expect anything from the court/judge/rules of law. The is reserved for few.

Tannu why were u silent for 10 years ? Your silence went against you in this case. I trust you but police doesnt move without evidence. Courts wont even consider taking up your case when there is no proof. U are a strong woman . I still can not figure out your silence. Were you scared ?

She was NOT silent. She DID complain to police and production house

Obviously she was scared, did you even see the footage?? All those goondas !!

There’s video footage so idk what other proof they’d want
