"In the middle of the investigation, the woman sent us a letter saying that she does not want to go ahead with the case but we are taking all actions as per law," Barata told ANI.
Gohain's son has also filed a complaint against the woman accusing her husband of blackmailing him and his father.

"Also, on August 2 another case was registered on the complaint of Nabarun Gohain, son of Rajen Gohain. He accused the woman's husband of blackmailing him and his father. In this case also, we are proceeding as per the law," Barata added.

According to media reports, Gohain allegedly lured the woman under the pretext of a job offer in the Railways.

Gohain is a veteran BJP leader, who has been representing the Nagaon Lok Sabha constituency in Assam since 1999.
