The Mumbai police on Thursday recorded the statement of one more person in connection with the complaint filed by actor Preity Zinta against her former boyfriend Ness Wadia, accusing him of molestation and intimidation at the Wankhede stadium on May 30.
Jay Kanojiya, a businessman from South Mumbai who was seated in the Garware pavilion where the actor had claimed to have been molested and abused by Mr. Wadia, supported Ms. Zinta’s claim.
“Mr. Kanojiya told us that he saw Mr. Wadia grabbing her arm but could not hear what they were saying,” a senior police officer probing the case told The Hindu . The police also want to record the statement of an American national, G Jean, close friend of the actor, who the actor had claimed he intervened when Mr. Wadia allegedly grabbed her arm. He left the country post the IPL final. The police have summoned Ms. Zinta’s friends — Parul Khanna and Shailesh Gupta — to record their statements.
