Nana Patekar and Sexual Harassment
Well after the news, Tanushree Dutta said that, it is false news. He claimed that the team Nana Patekar o spreading the rumors. While talking to entertainment news portal, Tanushree questioned, “Who are these 15 witnesses? Are they from my side or Nana’s side?
She claimed that, these witnesses are Nana friends and how police can give a clean chit to this matter. Because this is matter of Bollywood, it is about the future of actresses in the film industry. The actress said, “I don’t need witnesses to prove that I was harassed. The truth is sometimes difficult to prove in a court of law when it comes to harassment. The cops have been so slow with the probe. The mentality of people is such that they will lie to protect such criminals and prove the woman wrong.”
In her statement, she also alleged that the investigation process has slowed down “due to constant threat calls from Nana’s people received by many key witnesses from our side who have been unable to record their statement due to fear and intimidation.”
Later the accuser said that, Mumbai police has not given such a statement. I wish to clarify that the investigation on the matter is still ongoing as confirmed by my advocate and the Mumbai Police.”
