After sending a legal notice to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) director Sidhartha Mallya for his tweet questioning her character, an American woman who was allegedly molested by the IPL team's Australian recruit Luke Pomersbach has now filed a complaint with the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) against the Mallya scion.

"We have received a complaint from Zohail Hameed, and will send him (Mallya) a notice on the tweet," Barkha Singh, chairperson, DCW, said on Saturday.

"I'm very upset, hurt and disappointed by Sidhartha's comments posted on Twitter," Hameed told reporters.

Junior Mallya on Friday posted a tweet where he questioned the character of Hameed. "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 my bbm (blackberry messenger) pin, so if he was her fiance she wasn't exactly behaving like a future wife."

Pomersbach is alleged to have molested the woman at the ITC Maurya Hotel here early Friday morning and beaten her fiance Sahil Peerzada.
