Bengaluru: Cricketer Amit Mishra, who has been accused of physically assaulting and verbally abusing a woman, was arrested and questioned for over three hours on Tuesday, but was later released on bail.

Mishra appeared before the Ashok Nagar police around 10:30 am. He was arrested and taken to Cubbon Park police station for interrogation. 

A top police source said: “Mishra was furious as the victim entered his room without his permission when he was away. He mentioned that he was attending a preparatory training camp in the City and there are rules and guidelines which are to be followed. He did not want people to judge him by seeing him with a woman when he was undergoing training.”

DCP (Central) Sandip Patil said: “In the FIR, he was booked under Section 323 of the IPC (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt). But after examining the victim’s medical report, he has been booked under IPC Sections 325 (Punishment for voluntarily causing grievous hurt), 324, 354 (A), 504 and 506.” 

The victim, a 34-year-old film producer, has stated that she knew Mishra for over three years through a common friend. Around 8 pm on September 25, she called Mishra on his mobile but there was no response.

She then went to meet the cricketer at a hotel on Residency Road where he was put up. There was a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door but the victim went inside and found the room empty. After some time, she again went into the room and this time Mishra also entered.

At this point, Mishra began abusing her saying that she had no right to enter his room in his absence. 

He then hit the victim and threw a kettle at her. Mishra also choked her and twisted her right hand. In the melee, she suffered a fracture on her right ring finger. 

Unable to bear further harassment, she left around 12 midnight and took medical aid the next morning. Later she filed a complaint with the Ashok Nagar police.
