Actor Preity Zinta registered a case of molestation against former boyfriend and industrialist Ness Wadia in Mumbai late on Thursday night.
Deputy commissioner of police, zone I, Ravindra Shisve confirmed the filing of the complaint to HT.
In her complaint, the actor alleged that Wadia not only outraged her modesty but also abused and threatened her.
In her statement to the police, Zinta said the incident happened during the IPL qualifier for the final between Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on May 30.
She stated that during the match, while in the Garware Pavilion, Wadia came up to her, grabbed her by the hand and started using abusive words in front of other spectators.
Zinta and Wadia are co-owners of the IPL team Kings XI Punjab.
The actor, however, registered a complaint only on Thursday night.
A case under sections 354, 504 and 506 (assault on a woman, intentional insult and criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered.
The police said they were in the process of locating witnesses and would also be calling Wadia to record his statement.
The actor and the industrialist ended a five-year relationship in 2011. In an interview to a film magazine, Zinta had once said, “I walked out of my relationship with Ness Wadia.”
Neither Preity nor Wadia have cited any specific reason for the breakup.
