The US national who filed a case of assault against Luke Pomersbach, the Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman has moved to withdraw the case following an out-of-court settlement. A petition to withdraw the case has been filed in the Delhi High Court and will be heard on Friday.
The settlement was reached late on Wednesday night, ESPNcricinfo understands.
Pomersbach was detained by the Delhi police on Friday and charged with assault after the US national alleged that Pomersbach assaulted her and her fiance in their room at the team hotel on the night of May 17 after the match against Delhi Daredevils. Pomersbach was produced in a Delhi court, where he was granted interim bail, and was also suspended by the IPL franchise for the rest of this tournament.
Bail was granted as the hotel CCTV cameras could not establish trespass. The Delhi Police have submitted in court footage from the CCTV and a medical report regarding the nature of injury caused to the woman and her fiancé.
