Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta
on December 5, 2019, filed a protest petition before the Andheri Magistrate Court, opposing the 'B Summary' report filed by the Mumbai police in connection with her complaint of sexual assault against actor Nana Patekar.
In June this year, the police had registered a sexual assault case, however, later filed a B Summary report in the court. A B summary report is filed by the police when they do not find any evidence against the accused to go ahead and file charge sheet or conduct a trial in the case. The protest petition filed by Dutta’s lawyer Nitin Satpute demands from the court to initiate contempt proceeding against the investigating officer for filing a 'false' report and to direct the Anti Corruption Bureau to register a case against him.
Apart from this, the petition also demands narco-analysis of all the accused including the investigating officer and prays the court to hand over the investigation to the Crime Branch of Mumbai Police. Dutta filed a complaint against the veteran actorat Oshiwara police station in Mumbai in October 2018, accusing him of harassing her and misbehaving with her while shooting a song on the sets of the film "Horn Ok Pleasss
" in 2008. Based on the actress’s complaint, a case was registered against Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya, the film's producer Samee Siddiqui and director Rakesh Sarang.
