According to reports Preity has complained that Ness abused and manhandled her on May 30, during an IPL match at Wankhede Stadium after which she launched FIR against Wadia.

Preity had submitted a letter to Rakesh Maria Mumbai police commissioner on June 30 when she met him to seek permission to go abroad.

However, a source close to Wadia has dismissed the charge as false.

In her complaint to police on June 12, Zinta had accused Wadia of molesting, abusing and threatening her during an IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings on May 30 at Wankhede stadium.

Wadia and Zinta continue to co-own Kings XI Punjab team despite their estrangement.

Zinta had alleged that Wadia yelled at her and abused her before ‘grabbing my arm and pulling me’. The photos were apparently given to the police to substantiate the charge.

Marine Drive Police had registered 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 peace), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman).

Police have so far recorded statements of 12 witnesses named by Zinta including IPL's Chief Operating Officer Sundar Raman, BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel and COO of Kings XI Punjab Fraser Castellino.
