The Mumbai Police has filed a ‘B summary’ report in the Tanushree Datta alleged harassment case against actor Nana Patekar. A ‘B summary’ report is filed by the police when they are unable to find evidence in support of the complaint made and therefore they can’t go ahead with the investigation.

The Oshiwara police station filed the ‘B summary’ report to the Magistrate in Andheri, Deputy Commissioner of Police Paramjit Singh Dahiya told PTI.
Tanushree’s lawyer, Nitin Satpute has told Times Now that they have so far not received any official communication from the police. He also stated that if the Mumbai Police is thinking of filing a closure report, they’d “challenge” it.
There have been rumours galore that Nana Patekar has been given a clean chit in the case by the Mumbai Police. However, Tanushree’s lawyer scotched such rumours, claiming it to be a handiwork of Nana Patekar to play psychological games and get the police to give him a clean chit.
Earlier, actor Tanushree Datta had emerged out of woodwork after almost 10 years and levelled harassment allegations against actor Nana Patekar. Datta accused Patekar of sexually harassing her 10 years ago on the sets of their movie ‘Horn Ok Pleasss’.
In addition, Tanushree Datta had also alleged that the actor had inappropriately touched her even after her staunch objection to the lewd, vulgar or uncomfortable dance sequence with him.
The allegations were made by Tanushree amidst the raging MeToo controversy in October 2018 which took the country by storm. Many prominent personalities had to bear the brunt as the victims came out to recount their ordeal. AIB founder Tanmay Bhat and propagandist Kunal Kamra faced the public ire for not raising their voice against their friend’s sexual molestation attempts despite being cognizant about it.
