A molestation case filed by actor Preity Zinta against industrialist Ness Wadia in 2014 was today cancelled by the Bombay High Court, news agency ANI has reported. The court decision comes two days after it had suggested the actor to consider "finishing off" the case.
Preity Zinta's advocate had told the court that the actor is willing to settle the matter if Ness Wadia is ready to apologise. Ness Wadia's lawyer had, however, said the industrialist was not ready to apologise.
The court, which was hearing Ness Wadia's petition seeking the case be dropped, had then suggested the parties settle the matter.
"Just finish it off now," Justice Ranjit More had said on Monday.
The alleged incident had taken place at the Wankhede Stadium on May 30, 2014, during an Indian Premier League (IPL) match. Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia are co-owners of the Kings XI Punjab IPL team.
