As Royal Challengers Bangalore player Luke Pomersbach is produced in a Delhi court for allegedly molesting an American woman, owner Vijay Mallya's son Sidhartha clarified on the situation on his Twitter account.
"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.
"Everyone wants there 15 minuets," he further wrote.
Noting the recent controversies marring the current season of the IPL, junior Mallya tweeted, "First SRK, now this...everyone loves a good scandal. Why can't ppl just enjoy the cricket...has everyone forgotten chris' 100 last night?"
On Friday morning, RCB player Pomersbach was arrested and later produced in court for allegedly molesting an American woman and assaulting her fiancé during a post-match IPL party at ITC Maurya Sheraton hotel on Thursday night.
