Tanushree Dutta's FIR Against Nana Patekar: What Happened In 2008

HeForShe movement was based on the hope that both men and women should work for gender equality

Ever since Tanushree Dutta alleged that Nana Patekar had assaulted her, there have been many celebrities who came out in support of her including Priyanka Chopra, Twinkle Khanna and more.

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".

Dutta had also claimed that she had complained to the song's choreographer Ganesh Acharya, but she was forced to do scenes which were intimate and included Patekar touching her inappropriately. The four persons have been booked under section 354 (molestation) and 509 (Word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code late on Wednesday night. The filed complaint comes after she had earlier stated that they had sexually harassed her on the sets of Horn Ok Please in 2008 and a case has also been registered against director Rakesh Sarang and producer Samee Siddiqui.

"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". Additional Commissioner of Police, Manoj Kumar Sharma in interaction with PTI said, "We have registered a case against Patekar and others under section 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 509 (Word, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a woman) of IPC".

Dutta had sought the Commission's intervention after claiming that Patekar allegedly misbehaved with her on the sets of a film in 2008. "No one from the federation will work with that person, howsoever he or she is powerful", Ashoke Pandit, FWICE chief advisor, said.

Mr. Raj questioned the relevance of making sexual harassment allegations against anybody after 10 years.

On the way out, her vehicle was attacked but with the help of the police she managed to escape from the spot, it added.

While Tanushree Dutta was expected to take a legal action by filing an FIR against Patekar and others, the actress is said to have filed a complaint at Women's Commission on Tuesday with the help of her lawyer. Police sources said Dutta, along with two female witnesses, a hair-dresser and a make-up artist.
