A day after lodging an FIR against Panna collector RK Mishra for sexually exploiting her, the woman principal made a U-turn on Monday saying she gave the statement in a mentally unstable condition.

In an affidavit, the woman, said the collector had not done anything wrong with her.

Town inspector KK Khaneja said, “We asked her whether she was changing her statement under pressure, the woman denied.” Khaneja said now the court will decide on the matter.

On Saturday, the woman had attempted suicide by consuming poison accusing Mishra of sexually exploiting her. The state government has ordered a high-level inquiry in the matter. A team headed by additional chief secretary Aruna Sharma visited Panna on Monday.
