Amit Mishra To Appear Before Court For Alleged Assault Case
Indian cricketer Amit Mishra has been asked to appear before a trial court after the Karnataka High Court vacated its interim stay order on the proceedings in connection with a case of assault filed against the leg-spinner by a woman on October 20.
The 33-year-old had previously secured an interim relief by requesting the court to quash the proceedings. However, Justice Byrareddy vacated the stay on the grounds that it was hindering the trial. The court has instructed the Indian cricketer to appear before the trial court.
The spinner was accused by the lady of physically assaulting her in his hotel room on September 25. He was booked under Indian Penal Code sections 354 B (assault or use of criminal force to woman with intent to disrobe), 506 (criminal intimidation), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means). Mishra was arrested after the complaint was registered but was soon released on bail after the completion of legal procedures.
The lady, who had filed the case, said in her complaint she knew Mishra and the incident happened after the cricketer found her in his room when he returned to his hotel room. The cricketer reportedly lost his cool and argued with the lady before abusing and assaulting her.
