Royal Challengers Bangalore player Luke Pomersbach was arrested for allegedly molesting a woman in Delhi.
Jinesh Dumlawkar tweeted: ‘Looks like he took the saying ‘When in Rome, do as the Romans do’ so seriously that he ended up doing what Delhiwalas do.’ There was this from aCoolFunnyTweetTypo: ‘It’s pretty hectic for Pomersbach. Yesterday he was playing against Delhi Daredevils, today against Delhi Police.’
Fake IPL Player weighed in with this comment: ‘Shah Rukh Khan to send roses and a bottle of wine to Pomersbach for taking media attention away from him.’ And from Dibang: ‘Is this the IPL identity of players? Who is Pomersbach? Oh, the one who assaulted a woman in Delhi.’
Still in the news
Shah Rukh’s ban from Wankhede Stadium for five years ensured the presence of the star on timelines for a second day. Rajeev Chitguppi tweeted: ‘MCA bans Shah Rukh. Now, he has to take a loan, I guess, to buy a TV set and watch the matches.’
According to Sankar, ‘It is the bane of this country that a corrupt politician should have the gumption to ban a hard-working self-made guy like Shah Rukh!’ And an observation from Kiran Kumar S: ‘Five banned for spot-fixing. Shah Rukh banned for being rowdy. Luke Pomersbach arrested for molestation. IPL becoming Indian Perverts League?’
Look who’s talking
MCA President Vilasrao Deshmukh didn’t get off lightly either. Agnivo tweeted: ‘Deshmukh has no time to take media questions on the Adarsh scam, and he is bothered by a group of children entering Wankhede.’ Angry Bombay Girl added: ‘Deshmukh bans SRK for five years = Ritesh and Genelia will now get movie projects solely on their acting abilities.’
The last word
From former MP Pritish Nandy: ‘In my time, if a car came and grazed your car, you got down, abused the guy, came to blows. Then shook hands and went your own ways.’
