"(I am) shocked to be in this position. I can't believe this is happening and I'm really disappointed when people make things up," Pomersbach was quoted as saying by The Weekend Australian newspaper.

Pomersbach, who has not played a single game for RCB this season, was today arrested on charges of molesting an Indian American woman and severely attacking her fiancee leaving him in hospital.

The Australian player allegedly misbehaved with the woman, a US citizen of Indian origin, at the Maurya Sheraton Hotel here last night after RCB's IPL match against Daredevils.

A case has been registered against him under various sections of IPC including section 354 of IPC (outraging modesty of woman), 323 (hurt), 454 (lurking house trespass) and 511 (Punishment for attempting to commit offences punishable with imprisonment for life or other imprisonment).

The woman said the player invited himself for some drinks with the couple and some common friends from Mumbai in their room. She left the men alone and went to her bedroom for catching some sleep but Pomersbach followed her and misbehaved with her, she alleged.

When her fiancee intervened, Luke allegedly beat him up, she said. The woman's fiancee has been admitted to a hospital.

Later in the day, Pomersbach was produced in a Delhi courtroom, where he fainted but was released on bail for 24 hours.

The Indian Premier League organisers have already distanced themselves from the controversy, while RCB has banned Pomersbach till he is proven innocent.
