The Mumbai police, today, has filed a chargesheet against businessman Ness Wadia on the charges of molestation and verbal abusing Preity Zinta. Four years back, Bollywood actress Preity Zinta had filed case against her ex-boyfriend for molesting and threatening her during an IPL match. Now, the city police have filed a chargesheet against the businessman in Esplanade court. Ness Wadia was present during the submission of the charge sheet in the court of the chief metropolitan magistrate and he was also granted bail on the personal bond of Rs 20,000, according to reports.
The reports further say that Wadia has been charged under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 354 (assault or criminal force against woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 509 (word, gesture, or act intended to insult the modesty of woman).
Ness Wadia and Preity Zinta were in a relationship for over five years. The alleged harassment and verbal abuse happened during Indian Premier League match which apparently continued later as well. According to Preity Zinta’s complaint, the actress has alleged that she was assaulted during a match between Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings on May 30, 2014, at the Wankhede Stadium. The complaint reveals that Preity was abused by Ness when she was seated at Garware Pavilion over ticket distribution. She, then, changed her seat to avoid Ness but he continued to abuse her in front of the other team members.
Preity Zinta is currently happily married to Los Angeles based businessman Gene Goodenough. The duo got married on February 28, 2016.
