Actress’s molestation allegations dismissed
A MAJOR development at Bombay High Court this week was the quashing of a molestation and harassment matter filed by Bollywood actress Preity Zinta against her ex-boyfriend, business tycoon Ness Wadia.
Zinta made the allegations against Wadia relating to an incident during an IPL match on May 30, 2014, at the Wankhede Stadium.
The pair were, at the time, co-owners of the King XI Punjab team that faced Chennai Super Kings in a match.
The matter came before Justice Ranjit More and Justice Bharati Dangre, with Zinta and Wadia present.
A Wadia Group official confirmed the developments to IANS, but declined to comment on the matter.
According to Zinta’s complaint, Wadia allegedly abused the IPL team staffers over ticket distribution and she urged him to remain calm as their team was winning that evening.
However, she alleged that Wadia grabbed her arms, abused and molested her, and she subsequently lodged a complaint with police on June 13, 2014.
