#MeToo: Tanushree Dutta files Rs 10 crore defamation case against Rakhi Sawant
It was Tanushree Dutta who started the new wave of #MeToo movement. She levelled allegations of sexual harassment on Nana Patekar. After filing an FIR against him at the Oshiwara Police station, Tanushree has now filed a Rs 10 crore defamation case against Rakhi Sawant for calling her a liar.
Rakhi Sawant had called a press conference and had refuted Tanushree’s allegations and called her a liar. Responding to her, Tanushree Dutta hit back and sent a legal notice to Rakhi.
Tanushree’s lawyer Nitin Satpute spoke to Republic TV and said, “We have filed a criminal and civil defamation case against Rakhi Sawant for maligning my client’s character and image. If she fails to revert, she will be punished for two years or fined or both.”
