New Delhi, May 18 (Agency)
Royal Challengers Bangalore owner Sidhartha Mallya Friday questioned the character of the woman who was allegedly molested by the team's Australian recruit Luke Pomersbach, sparking outrage and exacerbating an already delicate situation.
Mallya later lost his cool when asked about his tweets and misbehaved with the media while leaving a five-star hotel in the national capital.
"The girl who is accusing Luke is saying he hit her 'fiance'...what a load of f****** s***. She was all over me last night and asked for me bbm pin, so if he was her fiance she wasn't exactly behaving like a future wife," Sidhartha tweeted.
"If Luke is in the wrong, then trust me he will face the necessary sanctions. But what this girl is doing is idiotic," he added.
The cyberworld was later replete with tweets condemning Mallya.
Pomersbach was arrested and released on interim bail for a day on charges of molesting Zohal Hameed, an American woman, in a five-star hotel in the capital and beating up her fiance, Sahil Peerzada, who is in a hospital ICU.
Vijay, senior Mallya, however, said that the Australian will not take part in the league any more.
Pomersbach earlier represented Kings XI Punjab in the IPL. He has not played a single game for the Royal Challengers this season.
Team mentor Anil Kumble said Royal Challangers was planning an internal inquiry into the incident.
"It is a very serious thing to have happened and we will certainly look into it. We are planning an internal inquiry into the matter," said Kumble.
"It is an unfortunate incident. It is disappointing. RCB will certainly not play Luke henceforth and we will cooperate with those who are investigating the incident," he added.
