He said that the police are thoroughly investigating the alleged incident involving the Bollywood actor and industrialist Ness Wadia.

"We have also asked Sony, which has broadcast rights, to give us available footage. We have asked BCCI for CCTV footage of the incident," the Mumbai Police chief said.

Regarding underworld threats to Nusli Wadia, father of Ness and chairman of Bombay Dyeing on Tuesday, Maria said, "We are also probing the details of five telephone calls made to Nusli Wadia and are still verifying them. The SMSes have been traced to Iran."

On 13 June 2014, Zinta had filed an FIR against Ness Wadia, alleging he had molested, threatened and abused her at an IPL match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on 30 May.
