    Preity-Ness case: Actress likely to record statement today

     Preity Zinta, who returned to India from the US on Sunday, is likely to record her statement in the Ness Wadia case.

    The actress had filed a complaint with the Mumbai police on June 13 against her former boyfriend and industrialist Ness Wadia for public humiliation and abusive behaviour during an Indian Premiere League (IPL) match in Wankhede stadium on May 30. The match was between Chennai Super Kings and Kings X1 Punjab.

    IPL COO Sundar Raman, had confirmed Preity’s allegations in a written statement to the Mumbai Police. Another eyewitness, Nimish, too confirmed to Preity’s allegation while talking to Zee News.

    On being questioned, Nimish revealed that the altercation did not take place during the match. He further added that there was very less interaction between Preity and Ness; and the row had erupted over the seats. The spat did not occur in his presence and they did not talk much during the match.
    The Mumbai Police have so far recorded statements of seven witnesses in relation with the complaint filed by Preity against Wadia. Out of the seven people, five of them have confirmed Preity`s allegations and acknowledged that the incident did take place.

    Preity filed a written complaint on June 13, 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)

    Preity Zinta had told me about abuse: IPL COO Sundar Raman

    The statement given by IPL chief operating officer (COO) Sundar Raman to the police on Thursday may spell trouble for industrialist Ness Wadia, who has been refuting allegations that he molested and abused actor and former girlfriend Preity Zinta.

    In his one-hour statement to the police, Raman confirmed that Zinta, the co-owner of Kings XI Punjab, had verbally complained to him regarding Wadia's behaviour.

    A police team went to his office at the BCCI headquarters in Churchgate. Wadia, however, has maintained that Zinta's complaint against him is 'false and baseless'.

    "In her complaint, Zinta had mentioned that she had complained to Raman immediately after the incident [on May 30]. He confirmed this to us," said Dr Ravindra Shisve, deputy commissioner of police, zone 1.

    Zinta said that she brought the matter to Raman's attention twice. In fact, he had even intervened when she and Wadia were having an argument during the IPL auctions in Bangalore and asked them to keep quiet, her complaint said.

    The second time was immediately after the May 30 incident that took place during a match between the Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium.

    While Shisve refused to give any more details, he said the police were only focusing on the alleged incident that took place at Wankhede and not during the auction.

    The police have also recorded the statements of six others, including BCCI officials. One of the officials was identified as Ankit Baldi, who was seen with Zinta in a video footage of the match.

    "A section of the media had said that the man in the video was Wadia, but Baldi clarified that it was him, explaining the sitting arrangements," a senior officer
    said, on condition of anonymity.
