Zee Media Bureau/Anindita Dev
New Delhi: The hype around Preity Zinta –Ness Wadia controversy simply refuses to die down. In another twist of events, Frazer Castelino, the COO of Kings XI Punjab will now record his statement in the case filed by Zinta against her former boyfriend Wadia, as asked by the Mumbai Police.
In what could possibly be termed as one of the most horrid end to a fairytale romance, Zinta has reportedly been directed by the police to record her statement against Ness.
According to reports published in a leading daily, the cops have given in written to Preity`s lawyer, asking her to be present at the Marine Drive police station and record the statement.
To ensure a fair trial to the case, the police will now check the footages in 5 CCTV cameras located at the stadium where the alleged spat between the two former lovers took place.
A detailed statement of the actress was crucial to proceed further with the case as the CCTV footage recovered by the police failed to provide any essential clue.
As per reports, Ness will be taken in for questioning only after the 39-year-old actress is done with re-recording of her statement. Preity will now have to be physically present and record her statements before the magistrate to spell out the exact series of events.
Preity`s lawyer Hitesh Jain denied that any sexual charges had been levied by the actress against Wadia.
Speaking to an English news channel on Monday, Jain expressed concern over the `sexual` angle that had cropped up in reference to the molestation charges filed by the actress against ex-boyfriend Ness Wadia.
The actress on June 12, alleged that her ex-boyfriend and industrialist Ness Wadia had abused and threatened her on May 30 during an IPL match at Wankhede.
