The Indian Premier League Chief Operating Officer Sundar Raman has officially lodged his statement with Marine Drive police over in the spat between Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia.

Mumbai Mirror reports that he backed Zinta’s claim that she had informed him about her troubles with Wadia, who is also her business partner in Kings XI Punjab.

DCP Ravindra Shisve said, “In his statement, Raman confirmed that Zinta had informed him about being abused by Wadia in the pavilion as well as on the field. A few whose statements were recorded confirmed the incident, while the rest didn’t know about it.”

Shisve added, “The two had got into an argument thrice – first in the presence of their team Kings 11 Punjab before the match, the second time in the Garware Pavilion where they were seated separately, and the third time on the filed after the match.”

Zinta who is abroad will return to Mumbai this week to officially record her statement.
