Mumbai: Actress Preity Zinta, who is back in the city , is likely to record her statement with the Marine Drive police on Tuesday . The statement would either be recorded at her residence or at Wankhede stadium, where the alleged incident took place.
The actress after landing in Mumbai by a British Airways flight on Sunday morning reached her Bandra house and stepped out for a meeting later in the night, said a source. She gave the media the slip and was out of her house for two hours. “Our officers will go to her residence to record her detailed statement. Later, she could be asked to come to Wankhede stadium for spot panchnama,“ said additional commissioner Krishna Prakash. A police source said that a woman officer will be part of the team that records Zinta's statement against her former industrialist boyfriend, Ness Wadia. Preity has lodged an FIR against Wadia, accusing him of issuing threats and abusing her.

“We are in the process of recording the witnesses' statement. The future course of action will be taken once Zinta's statement is recorded and corroborated with that of witnesses,“ said a police officer.
The police chief had called the actress back from Los Angeles, where she had flown to immediately after registering the FIR at Marine Drive police station on June 13. She has accused Ness, who along with her co-owns IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab, of pulling her hand and publicly humiliating her as a woman by using foul language and profanities against her at Wankhede stadium during a T20 match on May 30.
