Deccan Chronicle - - NATION -

Tan­suhree Dutta has sub­mit­ted an ap­pli­ca­tion be­fore the Oshi­wara po­lice seek­ing brain map­ping and a lie de­tec­tor test of ac­cused Nana Patekar along with the co-ac­cused in the mo­lesta­tion case of 2008. On Sat­ur­day, she sub­mit­ted her let­ter through her lawyer Nitin Sat­pute to the se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of Oshi­wara po­lice sta­tion.

Ms Dutta stated Patekar is in­flu­en­tial and a high-pro­file per­son­al­ity with good po­lit­i­cal con­nec­tions. Hence, there are chances that he can bring un­due pres­sure to bear on the wit­nesses to change their state­ment.

The ap­pli­ca­tion stated that there are eye­wit­nesses of the March 2008 in­ci­dent and they are will­ing to come for­ward to record their state­ment but they are hes­i­tant as they are scared of the ac­cused and there­fore ar­rest is nec­es­sary in this case. There­after more wit­nesses will come.

She also ex­pressed her ap­pre­hen­sion that Patekar has al­ready de­nied all the al­le­ga­tions be­fore the me­dia and that he may bring bo­gus wit­nesses to record neg­a­tive sen­tences.

She re­quested that Narco, brain map­ping and lie de­tec­tor test is needed to con­duct a fair in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

On Oc­to­ber 10, FIR was reg­is­tered against Patekar, chore­og­ra­pher Ganesh Acharya and Rakesh Sarang, film pro­ducer of Horn Ok Ple­assss at Oshi­wara po­lice sta­tion. Po­lice had booked them un­der sec­tion 354 and 509 of IPC.
