I've faith in Indian judiciary: Luke

After being granted bail in the American woman molestation case, Australian cricketer Luke Pomersbach said here on Saturday that he was “innocent” and termed the “a conspiracy” against him.

Pomersbach a member of Royal Challenger Bangalore in the ongoing IPL 5, said, “The girl is seeking attention. That’s why she is doing this.”

The city court granted bail but asked him to surrender his passport and not to not leave the country.  Expressing confidence in the Indian courts, Pomersbach  said: “I am very relieved after what happened in the court today. I’ve faith in Indian judiciary. I am happy with the support I have got from my family and girlfriend back home and the RCB. I am looking forward to get to the bottom of the investigation.”

A non-bailable trespassing case was withdrawn against him after the review of the closed circuit television footages.

Pomersbach also thanked Sidhartha Mallya for his help and support. “He is a great guy.”
Luke was arrested on Friday for allegedly molesting American woman Zohal Hameed and assaulting her fiance Sahil Peerzada  in a five-star hotel after a late-night party. Peerzada is admitted to Primus Hospital and doctors stated his condition as stable and his wound near the ear was healing. However, there is a slight problem in hearing due to swelling.

Meanwhile, Hameed has sent a legal notice to Sidhartha Mallya, director of RCB team for making offensive comments against her on Twitter on Saturday. She has lodged a complaint with the Delhi Commission for Women.

“I did meet Sidhartha Mallya. Sahil was invited to the IPL party and I was with him,” she said. Mallya Jr had tweeted on Friday: “The girl who is accusing Luke of hitting her fiance was all over me last night. If he was her fiance, she wasn’t exactly behaving like a future wife.”
