New Delhi: The Ness Wadia-Preity Zinta molestation case is taking new turns every day. Ness has been absent since the the actress lodged a complaint against him and given only some preliminary statements. It might be a deliberate decision to avoid circumstances turning worse than they already are for the business scion.

In the aftermath of Preity lodging an FIR against him, Wadia said in a statement, “I am shocked at the complaint and the allegations made against me are totally false and baseless." But not much has been heard from the Ness`s side after that. Here may be the reason why.

According to sources, a well known lawyer is trying to mediate between Ness and Priety. This might be the rationale why Ness Wadia camp is not reacting to the press or on social media and waiting for the outcome of this mediation.

The hope is that if everything works in the mediation process, both parties may approach the High Court and opt for settlement and not go ahead with the proceedings in the case.

The Wadia camp claims that they have about 32 witness to support their version to entire incident.

The news is also that the police is aware of mediation from its own sources, so it is waiting for a few days and delaying any further involvement to avoid embarrassment.

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.

Police sources say, “Wadia’s trouble are going to increase.”
