New Delhi: Wadia Group, owned by Ness Wadia's father Nusli Wadia had reportedly got threatening calls from underworld regarding Preity Zinta's alleged molestation charges.
On Tuesday, Nusli Wadia's personal assistant informed the police in Mumbai that an underworld don had first called and then sent an SMS on Monday evening. Mr Wadia was allegedly warned by the underworld saying ‘Do not intervene in Preity's issue anymore; otherwise you'll have to suffer in business. Also, do not try and harm her further.'
Mr Nusli Wadia is considered as a great industrialist and has got group interests in textiles, real estate and low-budget airline.
Bollywood actress Preity Zinta is currently out of the country and therefore, the police is waiting for her arrival to record her statement to proceed in the case.
Preity, who co-owns IPL team KXI Punjab with Ness Wadia filed a complaint against him alleging that the man had threatened her, pushed her and used foul language during IPL match in Mumbai's Wankhede stadium on May 30.
According to the sources, the police is considering to change the charges on Ness Wadia from ‘molestation' to ‘stalking' on the grounds that Preity had even warned Ness not to follow her.
As of now, IPL and the Indian cricket board have been asked by the police to provide a list of eyewitnesses or spectators present at the pavilion where Zinta and Wadia indulged in an alleged argument.
Ness Wadia has however called the claims baseless and had expressed ‘shock' over the issue.
Both Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia were involved in a relationship that ended in the year 2009, but the former lovers continued to co-own their IPL team, KXI Punjab.
