Remember the messy fight between ex lovers Priety Zinta and Ness Wadia in 2014? Preity alleged that during an IPL match in Mumbai, Ness abused the team staff and even tried to grab her arm and molest her when she asked him to calm down. A lot of dirty linen was washed then but now the case has come back to haunt Ness as the Mumbai Police filed a chargesheet based on the 2014 complaint.
Why is the chargesheet being filed now for an incident that occurred in four years ago? Well, that’s how the Indian judicial system operates! Media reports say the police filed a chargesheet on the basis of a complaint that Preity had filed in 2014, accusing Wadia of molesting her. The Esplanade court, where the chargesheet was filed, let Wadia go on a personal bond of Rs 20,000, the businessman’s counsel Abad Ponda said.
In her complaint, the actress had submitted four photographs depicting ‘bruise’ like marks on her arms alleging Ness had been violent with her. But Ness had hit back giving the names of people who he claimed were present at the time of the incident and denied any violence.
In August 2014, Gene Goodenough, who Preity married in February 2016, e-mailed his statement to the police. In his statement, Goodenough supported the claims made by his wife, stating that he had intervened when Wadia molested and abused Zinta. He asked Wadia not to misbehave with a woman.
Cricketer David Miller’s father Andrew Miller in his statement said that he was seated far away and though he had seen the estranged couple arguing, he did not see Wadia misbehave with Zinta.
However, while there was much unpleasantness in 2014, subsequently things seemed to subsided and there was event talk of a reconciliation after Preity got married. Evidently, with this twist in the case, things might go further downhill.
