Madhur Bhandarkar Case: Preeti Jain OPENS UP After Verdict, Claims She Didn’t Have Enough Money To Pay The Hitman
Yesterday, we told you that starlet Preeti Jain, along with two of her associates -- Naresh Pardeshi and Shivram Das -- were convicted for plotting to kill Madhur Bhandarkar in 2005 and sentenced to a 3-year jail term.

Furthermore, another two of Jain’s associates from Uttar Pradesh, who were also said to be involved, were acquitted from all charges because of lack of evidence.

Preeti, Naresh and Shivram have been granted bail for a hefty sum of Rs 15,000. Also, they have been given a four week time to appeal in the higher court.

“I had just Rs 550 in my bank account at the time the prosecution claimed that I paid Rs 75,000 to one of accused to kill Bhandarkar. I have proof. But I am not disheartened. Once we receive the detailed order, we will study it and move ahead for an appeal. I was not expecting this (the jail sentence). But I have complete faith in the judiciary,” Preeti said while speaking to a leading daily.

For those who've come in late, Preeti Jain filed a case against Madhur in 2004, where she had claimed that Bhandarkar had raped her continually, since 1999, in the pretext of getting married to him and giving her a lead role in his next film. However, when neither of that happened, Preeti went ahead and filed a case against Madhur for rape. The Supreme Court had quashed the case in 2012.

But during the course of that case, a rebuttal case was filed against Preeti for trying to plot Madhur's murder along with her associates in 2005. With Preeti being sentenced to jail for 3 years, and she waiting to move the higher court, it seems that this case too has a long way to go before it ends.
