A Mumbai woman who accused Maharashtra cabinet minister Dhananjay Munde of rape has withdrawn her complaint lodged with the police. An official gave this information on Friday. A police officer said that the woman told the investigating officer that she was withdrawing her complaint against Munde, although the woman did not say what was the reason behind her decision.
He said that the police has asked the complainant to give a notarized affidavit in this regard.
The woman accused Social Justice Minister Munde (45) of raping and sexually assaulting her by promising to marry in 2006. The woman had filed a complaint with the police in this regard on 11 January.
