Tanushree Dutta-Nana Patekar's row sees a new day of light with things taking its legal course this week. The actress, who filed a police complaint on October 6 at Oshiwara, registered an FIR under section 354, 354(A), section 34 and section 509 of IPC (Indian Penal Code) against Nana Patekar, Ganesh Acharya, Samee Siddiqui, Rakesh Sarang and MNS party workers, will record her statement on October 9.
Meanwhile, producer of 'Horn OK Pleassss', Samee Siddiqui recently filed a police complaint against Tanushree Dutta in Oshiwara police station. The letter of complaint stated that the complaint filed by Tanushree Dutta against Samee Siddiqui shall constitute a second FIR and thus the cognizance of the same is barred by the law. The complaint also mentioned that producer Samee Siddiqui was absent from the sets during the time of the alleged harassment.
His advocate Kishor L. Gaikwad sent a complaint to the Oshiwara police station where Tanushree Dutta filed an FIR against Samee Siddiqui. The letter of complaint stated,
"My client submits that he was not present on the set on that day and despite that his name is taken by Tanushree Dutta falsely and said she only intends to make the said claim for gaining publicity as she was out of the country for a decade and wants to make a comeback."
It further stated,
"My client has called upon me to give you this notice which I hereby do calling upon you to not register a Second FIR on the complaint received by you as the same shall be illegal and against the provisions of the Cr.PC and the law laid down by the Hon'ble supreme court in the judgement mentioned hereinabove."

Tanushree Dutta will record her official statement before the police on October 9, and her advocate, Nitin Satpute in an exclusive interview with Republic TV, opened up about the proceedings of the legal course of action on Tanushree Dutta's complaint against Nana Patekar. He stated, "We have moved the complaint about lodging a fresh FIR, or we will continue with the whole FIR and we will seek further investigation in that matter. If the police fail to register a case or investigate this matter, then we will file a private complaint before the magistrate seeking action against the police officer who has not recorded her statement properly and register a criminal action against him. Plus, we are moving to the High Court by filing a petition to seek direction and implement the Vishaka Committee for every working place, for the safety purpose of all and avoid sexual harassment at the working place."
