Preity Zinta to record her statement today against Ness Wadia in molestation case

The actor is all set to appear before Mumbai police today after returning from the US a couple of days back

Preity Zinta, who has accused her former boyfriend, industrialist Ness Wadia, of manhandling, abusing and threatening her, is likely to record her statement before Mumbai Police on Monday, report said.

Zinta, 39, had filed a police complaint on June 12 accusing Wadia, 44, of abusing her after the pair got into an argument while watching their team play the Chennai Super Kings on May 30 at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

Mumbai Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria had said last week that Zinta had agreed to return from a foreign trip to record her testimony for the police. He had also said that a team of investigators is scrutinising footage from security cameras at the stadium to see if the alleged fight was recorded.

Zinta has said that Mr Wadia pushed her and abused her.

Wadia has termed allegations “totally false and baseless”.  Wadia has also alleged in a police complaint that his company received threatening calls and texts from an underworld gangster referencing the Bollywood star. The caller identified himself as fugitive underworld don Ravi Pujari.

The police has since given security to Wadia. Zinta and Wadia were in a five-year relationship till 2009.
