Gangster made four more calls, say Wadias

Mumbai: Three days after gangster Ravi Pujari allegedly called up the Wadias asking them not to “harass“ actor Preity Zinta, the Wadia Group on Friday lodged a fresh police complaint saying it had got four more calls from the same number.
The office of Nusli Wadia complained to the anti-extortion cell of the Mumbai crime branch, which is probing the earlier threat calls, that they first received calls on the office phone on Friday . As the staffers did not pick it up after identifying the number, more calls were made on the mobile phone of Wadia's personal secretary. These, too, were not returned.

Police commissioner Rakesh Maria said cops have decided to provide security cover to two staffers belonging to the Wadia Group in the wake of the calls. Police have already deployed two armed constables each outside the Wadia office and residence.

Meanwhile, the Marine Drive police probing the case that Zinta filed last Friday against industrialist Ness Wa dia have recorded the statements of seven witnesses. The actor had alleged that Ness had abused, threatened and humiliated her in Wankhede Stadium's Garware Pavilion during an IPL match on May 30. Maria had said that the SMS threat issued on Monday was from an Iranian number and that the call was made using VOIP (voice over internet protocol, a technology that allows calls over the internet).
