Tanushree Dutta who kicked up the Me Too storm in the Hindi film industry last year and filed a case against Nana Patekar for sexual harassment witnessed a setback today. According to news agency ANI, the Mumbai Police have 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. This means that no evidence could be furnished against Nana Patekar and the case fought by Tanushree has come to an end.

However, the actress can still file a protest report if she is unhappy with the proceedings. Advocate Aniket Nikam, representing Nana Patekar told ANI, "The entire allegations against my client were false from the inception. My client is innocent and justice will be served." Tanushree had accused Nana Patekar of sexual misconduct on the sets of Horn Ok Pleassss which was filmed in 2009. 

Reacting to Nana Patekar's clean chit, Tanushree Dutta issued a statement in which she labelled the 'Welcome' actor and the Mumbai Police as 'corrupt'.

Tanushree's revelations inspired many other women in the Hindi film industry to speak out against the harassment meted out to them by producers, directors and actors. Another significant case is that of Vinta Nanda who had accused actor Alok Nath of rape and harassment.

This woman is hysterical because she was not believed.

Making a complaint is not evidence of a crime. She is now angry that she was found to be a false accuser which will further hurt her career. Too bad for her. She is now finished.

At last nana case closed. Hope nana will not file a case on tanushree

BW is all about flesh trade, predators win prey loses. Women have a shelf life and they do everything to stay ahead of their own gender. Dog eats dog world.

It's amazing to me how many people will instantly start believing a story is true anytime a woman accuses a man of misbehavior. Every thought maybe he's not? Why not wait until the investigation is done and then comment?

Shame real shame !!

SUCH A SHAME!!!!! IT ANGERS ME TO READ THIS.

That's the reason no one want to report crimes to police.

Damage has been done. Not a single f would be given about nana at least by the educated people.

lack of evidence so was Aloknath and Bikas Bahl! This tells the life of an Indian girls women! Shame!! ;(

Sigh!
