Tanushree seeks narco test for Nana and others named in sexual harassment case
Tanushree Duttasubmitted an application to the Amboli police senior inspector seeking arrest and carrying out of narcoanalysis, brain-mapping and lie director tests on actor Nana Patekar and others named in acase of sexual harassment. The others include choreographer Ganesh Acharya, producer Samee Siddiqui and director Rakesh Sarang. The application, through advocate Nitin Satpute, said they were highly influential with good political connections, hence, there was every possibility to put undue pressure, fear, and influence witnesses. It claimed witnesses were willing to record statements but were unable as they were scared of the accused.
The plea said, “My client says the accused are denying charges before media and they may put pressure on witnesses, or accused may produce bogus witnesses to record negative statements against the complainant, therefore fair investigation has to be carried out by conducting narcoanalysis, brain-mapping and lie detector test of accused and witnesses supporting them.”
Meanwhile, TV artistes’ association CINTAA accepted Dutta’s letter authorising Satpute to represent her and revive her 2008 complaint.
