Even as uncertainty prevails over the arrival of actor Preity Zinta in the city, the police on Friday made it clear that her supplementary statement would hold key to further investigation into her allegation of molestation and threatening against her ex-boyfriend Ness Wadia.

A section of the police investigating the case, claimed that she boarded a flight from Los Angeles on Friday and was scheduled to arrive in Mumbai early on Saturday morning, a senior officer supervising the investigation told HT that she had left the US on Thursday and landed in London on Friday. “She did not get a confirmed ticket from London on Friday and in all likelihood, she might fly on Saturday and reach Mumbai by Sunday,” the officer added. There was no confirmation from her lawyer about her scheduled arrival in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, the police recorded the statement of two more witnesses Jay Kanaujiya and Danish Merchant — close friends of the actor and Ness Wadia.

With the help of officials from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the police confirmed the two were present at the time of the incident.

The crime branch’s Anti Extortion Cell (AEC), probing the case involving threats issued by gangster Ravi Pujari to Ness Wadia’s father, Nusli Wadia, have written to the internet service provider asking for the route of the internet calls made by Pujari and to ascertain their place of origin.
