Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has accepted State Forest Minister Sanjay Rathod’s letter of resignation, which was sent to his office on Thursday afternoon.

Mr. Rathod stepped down on Sunday, a day ahead of the start of the budget session, after his name was linked to the death of a 23-year-old woman in Pune.

The Bharatiya Janata Party had been demanding the Shiv Sena leader’s resignation since the allegations surfaced nearly a month ago.
