Mumbai police lodges FIR against Nana, three others; starts probe

Earlier in the evening, the actor had reached the Oshiwara Police Station to record her statement regarding the case, another official said.

Mumbai police has lodged an FIR against actor Nana Patekar and three others on the basis of actor Tanushree Dutta's complaint of sexual harassment on the sets of a 2008 film and begun investigations, her lawyer said on Thursday.

The Bollywood actor had accused actor Patekar of sexually harassing her on the sets of the film in 2008, an official said. "These people will have to appear before police, and if they don't, they will be arrested", Tanushree's lawyer Nitin Satpute told IANS. She alleged that co-star Nana Patekar pretended to teach her few dance steps and touched her inappropriately.

Not just Nana Patekar, when Tanushree Dutta, spoke about the issue last time, she also accused many other prominent Bollywood personalities who were on the sets then including famous choreographer Ganesh Acharya.

"I felt very uncomfortable because of his behavior mentioned above and he has outraged my modesty I felt embarrassed like this his behavior was inappropriate towards me".

When Dutta refused to perform the new "intimate steps" with Patekar and retreated to her vanity van, she claimed that Siddiqui threatened to "defame me in the film industry and boycott me".

The Oshiwara police are likely to record Ms. Dutta's statement on Wednesday, sources said. Her lawyer stated that many parts of the complaint were not mentioned and the FIR was filed only for the offence of causing damage to her vehicle and riot.

The actress is also going to approach the Bombay High Court and will file a PIL seeking an internal complaints committee to be formed in every film related body.

After the incident, says Tanushree, she was under tremendous shock and suffered psychological trauma, "unable to take up work and suffered huge monetary loss in crores of rupees".
