The panel has also sought an update of investigation into the police complaint filed by Tanushree Dutta and has asked her to visit the office to record her statement.
Nana Patekar on Monday maintained his stand that he did not misbehave with actor Tanushree Dutta on the sets of a 2008 film and dismissed her allegations as a "lie". "I said this 10 years ago too. What was true then remains true today. My legal team has asked me not to speak. Otherwise why will I not speak to you guys," Patekar told reporters.
The 67-year-old actor's lawyer has sent a legal notice to Dutta for allegedly making false accusations against him in an incident that dates back to a decade. Dutta has also filed a complaint with the Mumbai Police against Patekar, choreographer Ganesh Acharya and the director and producer of the 2008 film.
In the wake of the campaign where several women are coming up with their stories of encounters with different forms of harassment, the National Commission of Women too is in the progress of gathering detailed information of various sexual harassment allegations that have come to light in media. ANI quoted the commission as saying that it is personally reaching out to the victims via telephone. The Commission will give a statement on Wednesday.
Editors Guild of India also issued a statement on 'incidents of sexual harassment on women journalists by male colleagues' stating that it calls upon media organisations to hold unbiased inquiries into all reported cases. Anybody found guilty of sexual harassment/assault should be punished, the news agency tweeted with the copy of the statement.
