A defamation notice has been sent to director of Royal Challengers Bangalore Sidhartha Mallya for his remarks on Twitter in connection to the Luke Pomersbach molestation case.

An American-Indian woman who was allegedly molested by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) player Luke Pomersbach has issued notice to the team's owner Sidhartha Mallya seeking his apology for his tweets questioning her character.

Zohail Hameed has sought Mallya's unconditional apology, her advocate Jitender Garg said.

Garg told IANS: "A legal notice is issued to Sidhartha Mallya for his twitter comment. We will wait for his reply. And if he refuses to apologise, we will file a defamation case against him."

On Friday, RCB owner Sidhartha Mallya tweeted: "The girl who is accusing Luke is saying he hit her 'fiance'... what a load of f****** s***. She was all over me last night and asked for my bbm (blackberry messenger) pin, so if he was her fiance she wasn't exactly behaving like a future wife."

Pomersbach is alleged to have molested the woman at the ITC Maurya Hotel here early Friday morning and beaten her fiance Sahil Peerzada.

Delhi Police registered a case of molestation against Pomersbach, who was later released on bail by a city court.
