Ac­tress’s mo­lesta­tion al­le­ga­tions dis­missed

Sunday Tribune - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
