A 21-year-old woman, who had last month lodged a police complaint of rape against a father-son duo from Kalyan, has now retracted her allegations. The woman from Uttar Pradesh, Yasmeen Baig, has approached the Bombay high court and the police, claiming that she had lodged a false complaint against Shafique Shaikh and his 20-year-old son Aatesham alias Sonu. Yasmeen and Aatesham got married last week. On June 16, Yasmeen had accused Shafique and Aatesham – now her father-in-law and husband respectively – of having raped her over a period of time. Aatesham and Yasmeen were in love and wanted to get married. However, when his father learnt about this, he refused to grant consent to their marriage. This, said Yasmeen, had spurred her to lodge a police complaint against Shafique and Aatesham.
