New Delhi - An Indian court has ordered that charges of molestation and assault against Australian cricketer Luke Pomersbach be dropped, after the complainants wanted to withdraw the case.

The Delhi High Court announced the decision on Friday, saying the dispute had been resolved and both parties "want to go back to their respective countries."

Pomersbach, a member of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team in the Indian Premier League, had been charged with allegedly molesting Zohal Hamid, a US national of Indian origin, and assaulting her boyfriend Sahil Peerzada at a New Delhi hotel last week.

Pomersbach, Hamid and Peerzada put in a joint petition saying they had reached an amicable settlement without any pressure or financial consideration.
