“I am relieved. I have got faith in the Indian judiciary. “ Pomersbach said after getting bail.

The court granted him bail as the trespassing charges leveled against him have been dropped since the CCTV footage of the incident could not establish the same.

But the court has asked the Australian player to submit his passport and pay two sureties Rs 30000 each.

Earlier in the day, Pomersbach appeared in a Delhi court. The Australian cricketer, arrested on charges of molesting an American woman in a hotel Thursday night, was yesterday granted interim bail for a day by a Delhi court.

Pomersbach, who has had a history of brawls and brush with police in his country, and accused of outraging the modesty of a woman here Thursday last night after a post-match party, had been granted relief by Metropolitan Magistrate Navita Kumari Bagha till Saturday.

The Magistrate had directed the Delhi Police to bring the CCTV footage from the hotel along with the medical records showing the nature of injury caused to the woman`s fiance Sahil, who was admitted in ICU in a private hospital here after being allegedly beaten by Pomersbach.

During the hearing, the court had asked the Delhi police as to why they had not secured the CCTV footage of the hotel.

Delhi Police had sought that the court should send the cricketer into judicial custody.

The woman had narrated the sequence of the event saying that she was with her fiance and Pomersbach forcibly entered their room in the hotel to have drinks and molested her.

"Sahil only told him `please leave the room` and he (Pomersbach) turned and started assaulting him and punched him (Sahil) several times on his face," she said.

Delhi Police had submitted that Pomersbach misbehaved with the woman and assaulted Sahil, who received injury.

The woman told the court that despite being beaten severely the case has been registered under section 323 of the IPC for simple hurt.

"The injuries are grievous and the police have charged him just under Section 323 of the IPC.. Sahil was beaten so badly that he is in the ICU," the woman had told the court.

Advocate Neeraj Chaudhary, who appeared for Pomersbach, vehemently opposed the police version and said that Sahil has not not been admitted to the ICU and Pomersbach was instead beaten up by him.

Meanwhile, the victim Zohal Hameed served a legal notice to RCB team director Sidhartha Mallya today.

Defending the Pomersbach, Mallya had questioned the victim’s character.

Hameed has sent a legal notice to Mallya seeking unconditional apology for his remarks made on Twitter.

The victim also met Delhi Commission for Women chief Barkha Singh and complained about Mallya’s indecent comments on her.

Delhi Commission for Women head Barkha Singh has meanwhile said that Mallya should apologise for his remarks.

Apart from money,lot many other things also happen and thats why India is being promoted as a big flesh trade market all over the world. These games are merely the pretexts for calling them.Everybody right from politicians,media,players,police,pimps,models are sharing the gains.
