#MeToo: Police files closure report after 8 months, says not enough evidence against Nana Patekar; Tanushree to challenge order
Tanushree Dutta had accused the veteran actor of harassing her on sets of 2009 film 'Horn 'OK' Pleassss'.
According to Times Now, the actress - who triggered the #MeToo movement in Bollywood last year when she had accused Patekar of harassment during the shooting of their 2009 film 'Horn 'OK' Pleassss' - has said she will continue the fight and is going to challenge the order.
Dutta's lawyer, Nitin Satpute, speaking to Times Now, also said, "We haven’t yet received any official communication from the police yet. However, we will challenge the closure report."
Earlier during the investigations, Satpute had claimed that the right witnesses were not been brought forward.
News agency ANI reported that the Mumbai Police had filed a B Summary report in this case. A 'B summary' report is when the police cannot find evidence in support of the complaint and are unable to continue the investigation.
Agencies report that the suburban Oshiwara police filed the 'B Summary' report before a metropolitan magistrate in Andheri.
Dutta had kickstarted India's #MeToo movement in September last year when she accused Patekar of harassing her a decade ago. She went on to file a police complaint in October, though the 'Welcome' actor had refuted the allegations.
