“I won’t withdraw the complaint against Amit (Mishra). I am hurt physically, mentally and emotionally by the cricketer,” she told the newspaper.

Apparently, the leg-spinner who was in touch with her till Wednesday, is now unreachable.

“He knew I was going to the police and kept saying he will come to Bengaluru and sort out the matter. I want Amit to come in front of the police and talk to me,” she further added.

Mishra was in Bengaluru last month for India's pre-tour training camp when he had met the woman.

The police had asked Mishra to appear before them in a week's time.

Mishra was booked under the Indian Penal Code sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 328 (causing hurt with intent to commit an offence).
