New Delhi:

The Delhi High Court has dropped a criminal case against Australian cricketer Luke Pomersbach after the woman who accused him of molesting her said they had agreed to an out-of-court settlement.

The court on Friday said charges against Indian Premier League (IPL) player Pomersbach, 27, of molesting the American woman and later beating up her fiance in a posh hotel room in New Delhi had been dropped.

The cricketer's arrest last week made headline news in Indian and Australian newspapers, adding to a recent string of bad press for the cricketing league.

Police said Pomersbach, an IPL Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team player had been accused of molesting the 27-year-old woman and beating up the woman's fiance after he objected to Pomersbach's alleged moves.

The cricketer has battled depression and drug problems and narrowly avoided a jail sentence in Australia after admitting assaulting a police officer who was trying to arrest him for drink driving.
