As per complaint lodged by Dhirendra Mishra, driver of Ness Wadia, he was beaten / assaulted for failing to cover distance of 7 kms in 10 minutes.

Dhirendra Mishra, 35, driver of Ness Wadia has lodged a complaint with MRA Marg Police Station at 2 am on March 19, 2016. He alleges that his boss forced him to cover a distance from Worli to Fort in 10 minutes, a task which was virtually impossible considering the peak hour traffic.

A non cognizable complaint has been lodged against Wadia and he is booked for both assault and for intimidating his driver. The cops have filed a non-cognizable complaint and not an FIR, u/s 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (Criminal intimidation) of IPC against Wadia.

Dhirendra Mishra has been driver of Ness Wadia's car for 2 years.

The driver states that he was thrashed by Wadia for not driving fast enough while he was even forced to break traffic signals. In his complaint, Mishra also stated that he used to be regularly beaten and assaulted by his boss and repeatedly forced to break traffic regulations.

Mishra has been working as a driver with Wadia for the past two and half years. On 18th May, Mishra picked up Wadia at 1.30 pm from Bombay Dyeing office in Worli and was asked to drive him to Fort in a matter of 10 minutes. He was forced to break 4 traffic signals during the journey and even paid a fine of INR 100 at one point despite which Wadia continued with his threats.

An officer at the MRA Marg police station stated that they have taken note of the complaint but there was no need to call Wadia to the police station. The officer also stated that the alleged assault only demands an NC complaint and not an FIR.

In another case involving Ness Wadia, he has finally recorded his statement with the police, two years after the case was filed against him by his then fiancee, Priety Zinta.
