New Delhi: In another twist of events after Preity Zinta arrived in Mumbai on Sunday afternoon, Zee News has spoken exclusively to one of the eye-witness present on the day the incident occurred.
On being questioned, Nimish revealed that the altercation did not take place during the match. He further added that there was very less interaction between Preity and Ness; and the row had erupted over the seats. The spat did not occur in his presence and they did not talk much during the match.
The Mumbai Police have recorded statements of seven witnesses in relation with the complaint filed by Preity against Wadia. Out of the seven people, five of them have confirmed Preity`s allegations and acknowledged that the incident did take place.
Preity filed a written complaint on June 13, following which an FIR was registered 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).
According to the sources, the reason behind the tiff began after Ness`s mother had to wait for almost 20 minutes in the stand for the seat booked for her, which was already occupied by Preity`s friends.
The incident supposedly took place on May 30 during an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Wankhede stadium in South Mumbai. The match was between Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab.

Preity who is back from the US, will most likely give a detailed statement to the Mumbai police by tomorrow. The police will examine the case thoroughly and will take the actress to the places to recreate the entire altercation scenes.
