New York: A former domestic help who accused Indian Consul General in New York Prabhu Dayal of making sexual advances, has now dropped the "sexual harassment" charges in an 'amended complaint' filed in a US court here.
Santosh Bhardwaj, 45, had filed a forced labour-suit against Dayal on June 20 this year accusing him of treating her as a slave and making sexual advances.
In her complaint, Bhardwaj had alleged in an eight-paragraph section titled 'Sexual Harassment and Escape' that Dayal had asked her to "give him a massage for pain in his legs" if she wanted money to send to India for her husband's treatment.
"Bhardwaj interpreted Dayal's statement as a request for sexual contact of some form...she was scared by his request," the initial complaint had said.
However, now a "First Amended Complaint" has been filed on behalf of Bhardwaj by her lawyers on August 12 in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York.
