Almost four years ago, Preity Zinta filed a police complaint of molestation and verbal abuse against then boyfriend Ness Wadia.
Now, the Marine Drive police in Mumbai filed a charge sheet in the case on February 20. The chargesheet will help for the trial to begin against Ness Wadia.
Per reports, Ness Wadia was present during the submission of the charge sheet and was granted bail on the personal bond of Rs 20,000.
Both were in a relationship for over five years, and the alleged 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, which continued in front of the other team members, even after she changed her seat to avoid Ness.
Preity Zinta further revealed in her complaint that she tried to stay away from Ness Wadia when he grabbed her hand. She has even submitted four photographs of her right arm with bruise marks.
Ness 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).
