Sidhartha tweeted on "lady's conduct": Mallya

Vijay Mallya
New Delhi, May 18: Defending his son Sidhartha's remarks on Zohal Hameed, the woman who was allegedly molested by IPL player Luke Pomersbach in a posh Delhi hotel on Thursday night, Royal Challengers Bangalore owner Vijay Mallya said he is not a child and has tweeted his impressions about the "lady's conduct". Sidhartha's remarks on the woman had come under widespread criticism. Even a notice was issued to him after Hameed sued him for his comments.

"He is not a child. He can defend himself. He said what he felt. Twitter is a global forum and he has been tweeting for a while and he has his set of followers," Mallya senior said when asked whether his son's tweets were appropriate.

Earlier, seeking to question the character of Hamid, Sidhartha tweeted: "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."

Meanwhile, when asked whether he had a chance to speak to Pomersbach, Mallya senior said, "No I haven't. This could have been probably one of the late night brawls. But we at RCB has always said that the law should take its own course." Mallya also felt that the recent sting operation, the brawl at Wankhede involving Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and now, the Pomersbach episode, wouldn't affect the brand IPL.

"Absolutely not. All sorts of incidents happen. Doping incidents do occur in the Olympics. Brawls take place regularly in European league football matches but yet they continue to be extremely popular," he said.

Mallya, however, made it clear that Pomersbach wouldn't play till investigations were on.
