Tanushree Dutta has given a strong reaction after Nana Patekar, who she accused of harrassing her. received a clean chit by Mumbai Police.
According to Hindustan Times, Dutta said, “A corrupt police force and legal system giving a clean chit to an even more corrupt person Nana who has been accused even in the past of bullying,intimidation and harassment by several women in the film industry.Our witnesses have been silenced by intimidation and fake witnesses have been put forth to weaken the case”.
The police are thought to have said they do not have sufficient evidence to file a charge sheet against the actor. Reacting to the ‘B Summary’ report that clairifed the insufficient evidence, Dutta said, “What was the rush to file a B summary report when all of my witnesses have not even recorded their statements yet?? I’m neither shocked nor surprised being a woman in India this is something we all have got used to”.
“I pray that I never have to deal with this kind of toxicity ever again in life.I’m tired of fighting alone against oppressors,bullies and a corrupt system.I have better things to do in life with my talent and skill set and I need to focus on those but please don’t take this example to mean that you will not be heard when you speak up!Continue to expose these creeps through social media and other platforms so that in future people would think twice before troubling an innocent young girl.I still believe btw that I will get justice and victory will be mine! How..only time will tell,” she added.
Dutta started the #MeToo movement, encouraging people to speak out about sexual harrassment or unwanted behaviour when being part of the Indian entertainment industry.
