The woman who filed an assault complaint against India spinner Amit Mishra has confirmed that she has dropped all the charges.

The woman, who lodged the complaint two days ago, claimed that she was attacked during an Indian team training camp in the last week of September.

“Two days after lodging the complaint, I approached the police station and told them that I have in principle decided to withdraw the case,” she told reporters. “I am waiting for Mishra to appear in the police station. We both will amicably withdraw the case. We were friends. We fought, and continue to remain friends here after.”

The woman also made it clear that she had not been coerced into dropping the charges against Mishra.

“There was no pressure from any quarters, including the BCCI,” she said. “I am surprised how the media picked up the case, which I have decided to withdraw.”
