Eye witness’s statement might tilt the case  in favour of business tycoon Ness Wadia who had been accused of abusing the Bollywood diva in public

The Preity Zinta-Ness Wadia controversy has been the most discussed topic amongst the gossip mongers in recent times. The case already filled with many twist and turns has undergone a new development. As Preity Zinta returns to India to give a statement against Ness Wadia, an eye witness has testified in favour of the business tycoon.

Industrialist Sharath Nath, who was present in the Wankhede stadium during the night in question, stated to the authorities,” Yes, I was present and I was standing around 10-12 rows behind Preity. She was in the very first line. I saw Wadia coming and his family members were with him. He went upto Preity and had a discussion but it wasn’t a heated argument. Then he came back and took his family member to the air conditioned section. I just said hello to him as I don’t know him that closely. I just know Wadia socially”.

The eye witness added,” I saw Preity through out the match. I did not see them both going together somewhere. Whatever I saw there didn’t ring any alarm bell. I didn’t notice him touch her. He just walked away. From body language it looked like two people talking to each other.”

With rumours of Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar being  abused by Mr Wadia to  Wadia family receiving underworld threats on behalf of Ishkq in Paris starlet, making rounds in the internet, this Preity-Ness molestation saga is getting murkier with every passing day.
