Sandip Moneea (52) was previously acquitted of murdering the 27-year-old while she was on honeymoon in Mauritius in January 2011.
Earlier this year he was charged with conspiracy to commit larceny in relation to the case.
According to Moneea’s barrister Neelkanth Dulloo the charge was struck out at a court hearing on Tuesday.
In April, his lawyer told the court that the charges had “no basis” when he filed to have them dropped.

"There is no substance to the charge whatsoever,” he said.
“It is solely based on a new statement given by Dassen Narayanen, who has proven himself to be an unreliable witness in the past.”
He said Mr Moneea had been left “devastated” by his re-arrest more than a decade after he was acquitted of murdering Mrs Mcareavey, but that he believed he would be bailed next week.
A decision on the case against Narayanen has been adjourned until 25 July.
His barrister Vikash Teeluckdharry said that prosecutors only received the evidence file from police on Friday and had requested more time to review it.
The daughter of GAA manager Mickey Harte was strangled to death in her hotel room.
Michaela was attacked when she returned to her hotel room alone and disturbed a burglary.
Sandip Moneea, who worked at the Legends Hotel at the time of the murder was accused of conspiring with his colleague, Dassen Narayanen (37) to steal a key card to the hotel room in order to commit larceny.
Both men have denied the charge.
