It seems like bad luck is following team India and its players, where on one side team is struggling hard for a win in India – South Africa ODI series and on the other side a assault case has been filled against Amit Mishra. A woman has alleged that Mishra has physically assaulted her in a hotel room of Bangalore last month; local police after investigation has summoned Mishra to show up in next seven days for further questioning.
The case briefed as physical assault by victim woman, happened during the training camp of team India in Bangalore last month. The victim in her brief also remarked that argument between her and Amit Mishra, occurred in his room which eventually got intense and Mishra got physical with her, thereafter she has reported the case to local police and lunched FIR in Ashok Nagar police station at Bangalore.
Deputy Police Commissioner Sandeep Patil in his statement given to Hindustan Times said “We have shot off a notice, summoning India cricketer Amit Mishra for allegedly physically assaulting and physically abusing a woman in his hotel room last month,” while another police officer told the media that they have collected enough evidence against the Indian cricketer.
Following the complaint launched by victim, Mishra has been booked under IPC sections 354 and 328. The complaint was launched on 25th September.
Sandeep Patil also added that department has sent summon to Amit Mishra, according to which he has to appear before Bangalore police within a week, on failing to comply the summon strict action will be taken against the player.
It is a serious setback of Amit Mishra, as he has been in playing squad of team India for the upcoming test series with South Africa, moreover he is also playing in the on-going ODI series between both the teams, which has fourth ODI scheduled for 22nd October.
