Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia
Mumbai, June 23: Preity Zinta must be relieved now as witnesses supported her statement in the infamous case involving her ex beau Ness Wadia. Mumbai Police recorded statements of seven witnesses and five out of them confirmed confirmed the Bollywood actress's allegations and acknowledged that the incident did indeed take place.

Earlier a witness, who has been identified as industrialist Sharat Nath, claimed that he was present at same place where Preity and Wadia were present on May 30 during an IPL match between Punjab and Chennai at Mumbai's Wankhede stadium.

Nath, during his interrogation, was quoted as saying, "Yes, I was present and I was standing around 10-12 rows behind Preity. She was in the very first line. I saw Wadia coming and his family members were with him. He went upto Preity and had a discussion but it wasn't a heated argument. Then he came back and took his family member to the air conditioned section. I just said hello to him as I don't know him that closely. I just know Wadia socially."

One media report quoted him as saying, "I saw Preity through out the match. I did not see them both going together somewhere. Whatever I saw there didn't ring any alarm bell. I didn't notice him touch her. He just walked away. From body language it looked like two people talking to each other."

The actress on June 13 filed an FIR against Wadia 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).

Preity, who had gone to US soon after filing the FIR, returned to India and sources informed that police are likely to record her statement on Tuesday. Many media reports claimed that cricketer Sachin Tendulkar's teenage son Arjun too was present at the same place and was abused by Wadia while the kid had apparently asked him not to disturb them by his altercation with Preity.

Preity-Wadia case has taken a serious turn when the Wadia Group filed complaint saying underworld don has been threatening them on behalf of the actress. The duo, who were in a romantic relationship for five years, broke up but continue to co-own IPL team -- Kings XI Punjab.
