Failed to mount Windows (NTFS): Operation not permitted.

Error mounting /dev/sdx at /media/mount_point: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" "/dev/sdx" "/media/mount_point"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0).
Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount.
Failed to mount '/dev/sdx': Operation not permitted
The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown
Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume
read-only with the 'ro' mount option.

mount as read-only

$ sudo mount -t ntfs -o ro /dev/sdx /media/mount_point

use ntfs-3g

$ sudo mount.ntfs-3g /dev/sdx /media/mount_point
Say Thanks
