Bollywood star Nana Patekar gets a clean chit from Mumbai Police in a sexual harassment case filed by Tanushree Dutta

The Mumbai Police have filed a closure report in the #MeToo case by actress Tanushree Dutta against Bollywood star Nana Patekar — that triggered a #MeToo movement in India making numerous women coming forward to report sexual harassment cases in the country.

"Yes, we have filed a B-Summary Report before the court," Mumbai Police spokesperson, Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath Shinge told IANS. A B-Summary report is filed when the investigation can’t be continued due to lack of evidence to support the case.

Tanushree Dutta, as per her lawyer Nitin Satpute, is going to challenge the move by Mumbai police. "If the police file any B or C classification of Summary Report, that cannot be final. We shall oppose it before the court. After hearing, if the court is satisfied, then it can again direct the police to re-investigate," Satpute said.

Tanushree Dutta lodged an FIR against Nana Patekar in September 2018 alleging that he sexually harassed her during a film shoot in 2008.
