Tanushree Dutta's sexual harassment case is finally making progress, as the police took down statements of actor Sudhir Pandey, who is a member of Cine & TV Artistes' Association (CINTAA). Sudhir Pandey was present during the shoot of Horn OK Please in 2008 and is a witness to what occurred on that fateful day. It is reported that the police will also take statements from the others who came forward as witnesses in the Tanushree-Nana case.
Actor Sudhir Pandey opened up by saying, "I've provided the cops with the facts of the case and minutes of the meeting between the complainant and the party in which the issue of sexual harassment was raised. Since the complainant had also lodged a police complaint, we followed the standard procedure," he said to the reporters.
