Police to record statements of witnesses before summoning Nana Patekar

Amitabh Bachchan’s take on MeToo movement after being called out by Tanushree Dutta

"The statement of Tanushree Dutta has been recorded in English so that she can understand the language".

"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", additional commissioner of police (west region) Manojkumar Sharma told PTI.

According to the ANI news agency, FIR has also been lodged against director Rakesh Sarang, producer Samee Siddiqui and choreographer Ganesh Acharya under Section 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). She added that on October 5, days after she spoke out again after a decade, she was publicly embarrassed by comments allegedly made by Siddiqui in a television interview.

Last year, a woman employee at the now dissolved Phantom Films, which had Bahl as one of the partners alongside Anurag Kashap, Vikramaditya Motwane and Madhu Mantena, had alleged that Bahl behaved inappropriately with her during a trip to Goa. "When he was touching me indecently and unnecessary I felt very uncomfortable because of his behaviour, I felt he has outraged my modesty", the letter read.

The MSCW will also be writing to production houses in Mumbai to ensure compliance with the requirement by law of setting up of internal complaints committee to deal with issues of sexual harassment. She also claimed that even as she complained to choreographer Acharya, she was forced to shoot the song sequence with the actor which involved several intimate scenes that she was uncomfortable with.

Though it is not clear to whom this interview was given he has now spoken against sexual harassment. Many parts of my complaint were deleted, omitted and avoided, she alleged.

"Before summoning the accused, we will record the statements of other witnesses in the case on the incident in question", a police officer said.

"The complainant has stated that more than 100 people were present on the set at the time when the offence took place".

While she managed to escape to Goregaon police station, Dutta claimed that her allegations of sexual harassment were left out and only a complaint of damage to her vehicle was registered against mediapersons.
