Ness says Preity’s charges false, names nine witnesses
Ness Wadia has finally broke his silence and for the first time since Preity lodged complaint against him he has opened his mouth before Mumbai police and claimed that all the charges against him are false and baseless. He has also written a letter to police where he named nine witnesses in the case supporting him.
The nine witnesses named by Ness Wadia are Sereika Lal, Loretta Joseph, Pooja Dadlani, Anneline Adams, Farah Oomerbhoy, Sweety Burman, Kamlesh Shah, Rayaan Mustapha and Sharat Nath. The actress’s witness list includes her American guest Jean, Mumbai businessman Jay Kanojia, Parul Khanna and Shailesh Gupta.
Preity Zinta has filed molestation and threatening case against the business tycoon and her former boyfriend. Wadia has been booked 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).
Ness Wadia is likely to be questioned by Mumbai police. Ness Wadia has claimed that though there was an argument between him and Preity, there was no manhandling or abusing. The source close to Wadia also claimed, "Many witnesses have already corroborated this point." The police have decided to take it slow and steady and not to rush into anything since this is a hi-profile case with lots of media coverage. The officer said, “We are not in a hurry. We will see the evidence and hear both sides and witnesses before taking any decision."
