Investigators probing the Preity Zinta alleged molestation case are focusing on the sequences of the events of the alleged molestation incident in three segments, a police official said on Thursday.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 1) Ravindra Shisve said that as per her complaint, the actor was allegedly molested, abused and threatened at three places in the Wankhede Stadium on May 30. “She mentioned that when Ness Wadia was shouting at her team staff she had to intervene, following which he pulled her by hand and abused her and screamed at her. She then went to her seat where Wadia followed her and abused her again. She claimed that Wadia abused her and insulted her again on the ground after the match ended,” Shisve said.

Police are now seeking CCTV footages and official match recordings from the broadcasters.

Police recorded the statement of IPL chief operating officer Sundar Raman. Police said Raman’s statement was in “affirmation” with Zinta’s verbal complaint to him regarding Wadia’s behavior. This could spell trouble for Wadia, who has termed the allegations “false and baseless”.
 
Police have stepped up security at the residence and business headquarters of the Wadias after they reportedly received threats from fugitive gangster Ravi Pujari.
