Back in 2013, dialogue writer Abbas Tyrewala had registered a case against Preity Zinta after a cheque given by her had been dishonoured. However now we hear that on Monday a local court has acquitted Zinta in the case.
In its ruling the Andheri magistrate said the complaint failed to make out any case against the firm and discharged it but issued notice to Zinta. Simultaneously Zinta's defence lawyers S K Jain and Hitesh Jain said that Tyrewala was not enitled to the money since he had not delivered the work as stipulated under the contract and hence was not supposed to encash the amount.
Issuing the acquittal the court has also sought Zinta's presence on April 4 to execute a bail bond, a legal requirement in case of an appeal being filed against the verdict.
