Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, who is also the co-owner of IPL team Kings XI Punjab, on Friday filed a molestation case against her ex-boyfriend and noted businessman Ness Wadia. Reacting to the complaint, Wadia issued a statement expressing shock at the development and denying all allegations.
The statement: “I am shocked at the complaint and the allegations made against me and they were totally false and baseless.”
According to reports, the actress alleged in her complaint to the police that she was abused by Wadia earlier as well. She further accused Wadia of even threatening her over the issue.
The 39-year-old actress filed the police complaint last night alleging that she was molested by Wadia (44) inside Wankhede stadium on May 30, when an IPL match between KingsXI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings was played.
Zinta gave a written complaint following which an FIR was registered against Wadia under IPC sections 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation) and 509 (Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), police sources added.
