Zohal moves HC to withdraw molestation case against Luke Pomersbach

Zohal has decided to withdraw case against RCB player after reaching an out of court settlement.

American national Zohal Hamid today moved the Delhi High Court seeking quashing of the FIR in the molestation case against Australian cricketer Luke Pomersbach after both the parties reached a settlement last night.

The petition by Zohal in the High Court is likely to be taken up tomorrow.

Pomersbach was arrested last Friday for allegedly molesting her and injuring her fiance Sahil Peerzada after an IPL party in a five-star hotel here.

Pomersbach,playing for Royal Bangalore Challengers in the ongoing Indian Premier League,was later released on bail on the condition that he would not leave the country and contact Zohal.


Pomersbach had allegedly hit Sahil when he objected to the cricketer’s alleged misbehaviour with Zohal. In the fight,Pomersbach had also got his right hand fractured.

The first indication to this out of court settlement came yesterday when Sahil’s brother Feroz claimed they did not want to pursue the case. Feroz had said that Pomersbach should not have done what he did.
