London, June 26 (ANI): Italian police has opened an investigation after a car owned by Barbara Montereale, the 23-year-old model who claimed that Silvio Berlusconi slept with a prostitute, was found burnt out outside her home in Modugno, near the southern port of Bari.
Carabinieri officers claimed that someone had forced open Honda Jazz's door and thrown petrol or other flammable material onto the front seats, before setting it alight, reports The Telegraph.
Montereale made headlines after she alleged that she was invited to a party at the Italian prime minister's mansion in Rome in November, at which a high-class call-girl, Patrizia D'Addario, 42, slept with the prime minister.
The 72-year-old billionaire is embroiled in a host of scandals from his links to an aspiring teenage model, Noemi Letizia, 18, to a messy and potentially expensive divorce from his wife of 20 years, Veronica Lario.
D'Addario told last week that she had gone twice to Berlusconi's Rome residence on the promise of earning 1,700 pounds. (ANI)
