Regarding the sexual harassment case, Tanusree once again surfaces to clear the air about the current happening of the case that she filed against Nana Patekar
In September last year, Tanushree Dutta filed an FIR against Nan Patekar charging him against sexual harassment case. Though there was news of the settlement of the case where Nana has been given a clean chit by the Mumbai police, Tanusree surfaces once again with her statement to clear the air. Nana’s PR team came up with the news recently that he was released from the case due to no available eye witness.
Tanusree recently came up with her stamen that the investigation relating the FIR of sexual harassment is still going on. She also accused Nana’s PR team to spread false rumors. She said “There is a false rumor floating around the media that Nana Patekar has been given clean chit by the Police in the harassment case. I wish to clarify that the Mumbai police have given no such statement and that the investigation in the matter is still ongoing as confirmed by my advocate Nitin Satpute and the Mumbai Police.”
To this Tanusree continued, “Mr. Satpute will be holding a press conference on my behalf in Mumbai very soon and will provide clarity on the proceedings of the case. We have realized that Nana Patekar’s Public Relations team is responsible for spreading these false rumors because the accused in the harassment case are not being offered work in the industry. This is their attempt at damage control and keeping their public image intact.”
“I urge the media and the public not to jump to conclusions based on hearsay and to please verify facts prior to printing them. There is too much misinformation being spread and the public needs to know the truth of the matter. It is true that the investigation has been slow due to constant threat calls from Nana’s people which were received by many key witnesses from our side who have been unable to record their statement due to fear and intimidation.”
Further, she said, “False witnesses have been presented in their place to mislead the investigation. Calls have been made to witnesses from various sources in order to discourage them from speaking the truth. Under such circumstances, what manner of investigation or justice can be possible? But I still have hope that no matter how long it takes, I can expect to see Nana Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya, Producer Sami Siddique and Director Rakesh Sawant behind bars for orchestrating the sexual harassment and mob attack on me and my family in our car,” said Tanushree Dutta.
“How can the cops give a clean chit to one person when my FIR was filed against four people? Hence, there is major foul play going around with all sorts of lies being spread by Nana Patekar’s team. To these four, I want to say… ‘I stayed away from the industry for 10 years because of the trauma of the mob attack, the harassment and the public humiliation you put me through. I will not let you get off the hook so easily. Let the sword of jail and public scrutiny hang over your heads for at least a decade till you are brought to your knees in humility and repentance! An eye for an eye and a decade for a decade unless you are forgiven by grace. You will repent and ask for forgiveness, until then, I’m not dropping this case. Let it go on for as long as it can. I have time on my side,” concluded Tanushree Dutta.
It seems that the ace actor Nana Patekar is still in trouble and it will take him some more time to get cleaned of the allegations charged against him.
