Oshiwara police have concluded that the allegation of sexual harassment levelled by actress Tanushree Dutta against actor Nana Patekar saying was false and was made with an intention to seek revenge.

The police on Thursday filed a B-summary report before the metropolitan magistrate court at Andheri, seeking to close the case.

B-summary implies the complaint is “maliciously false.” The case will be closed, if the magistrate accepts the report. Otherwise, the police will have to undertake further investigation and file a fresh report.

In a statement, the actor questioned the police’s rush to file a ‘B Summary’ report.

“Our witnesses have been silenced by intimidation and fake witnesses have been put forth to weaken the case. 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,” Dutta said.
