Not Able to drop a table..Please help me out

While trying to delete from a table got below error:

The 'delete' statement will not be executed because the cross-database referential constraint on table 'ims24_fits..e_fit_trade' cannot be enforced. A table or constraint definition is missing in database 'global'. Contact your System Administrator.

Msg: 436, Level: 16, State: 1

Below is the details of sp_helpconstraint:

name                    definition                                                                   created

XPK_e_fit_trade         PRIMARY KEY INDEX ( seqno) : CLUSTERED, FOREIGN REFERENCE                    Mar 16 2015  3:47PM

The Second constraint is NULL.

It's not even letting me to delete the table.
