We had reported that Bollywood actress Preity Zinta had filed a complaint at Marine Drive Police station, accusing her ex-boyfriend and business partner Ness Wadia, of molesting her inside Wankhede stadium in south Mumbai. The incident took place on May 30, following which Preity gave a written complaint and lodged an FIR on Thursday, 12 June 2014.
The FIR lodged by the actress stated that Ness Wadia harassed, abused and threatened her despite their relationship going kaput a few years ago.
Reacting to the above allegations made againt him, Ness Wadia told reporters: “I am shocked and dismayed. The allegations are totally false and baseless. He went on to says that he was disgusted with the fact that Preity could “stoop to such a level.”
So why was there a delay in filing a complaint immediately after the incident?
A police officer said: “The actor claimed that she had to go out of the city and hence she could not approach the police earlier. As soon as she returned, she lodged a complaint.”
Preity Zinta issued a statement to the media, saying, “This is a very difficutlt time for me. I request the media to respect my privacy. My intention isn’t to harm any one but only to protect myself.”
Meanwhile, Wadia claims that assulting the actress is simply impossible as she is always surrounded by bouncers. A source close to Wadia said: “Zinta could not digest the fact that her former boyfriend, who is still her business partner, was involved in another relationship.” They further added: “His mother had to undergo serious discomfort when attending a Kings XI Punjab match resulting in an argument between the two. Zinta has been trying to garner publicity out of whatever is left of her relationship with Wadia.”
