Non-bailable warrant against Preity Zinta in cheque bounce case

September 12, 2013 21:03 IST

The local metropolitan magistrate's court at Andheri on Thursday issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Bollywood actress Preity Zinta in connection with a cheque bouncing case.

"The court has issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Zinta on Thursday," confirmed her lawyer Ratneshwar Jha. Jha told PTI that he told the court that Zinta was out  of the country, but the court issued the non-bailable arrest warrant against her.

"We will move the court to cancel the warrant or we will move the Bombay high court and file a writ," Jha added.

The cheque bouncing case was filed by Abbas Tyrewala, dialogue writer of the movie 'Ishkq in Paris', released last year, after a cheque of Rs 18.9 lakh bounced

It may be recalled that during the last hearing, the court had imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 on Preity Zinta for non-appearance and the non-bailable arrest warrant has been issued, since she did not turn up in court on Thursday
