Actually, the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court has rejected the bail plea of Ashish Mishra. That is, Ashish Mishra will still have to stay in jail. It was believed that he could be given bail with some conditions, but it did not happen.

This case comes under the category of heinous crime. Senior advocate Gopal Chaturvedi on behalf of Ashish Mishra, Kamaljit Rakhda on behalf of the victims, AAG Vinod Shahi on behalf of the state government were present.
Earlier, the matter was heard on July 15 when the court had reserved its verdict. But on Tuesday, the High Court rejected Ashish Mishra’s bail plea and sent him to jail again. Ashish Mishra will have to remain in jail for the time being. Ashish Mishra’s lawyers tried their best to get him bail but the court could not make his arguments work. Earlier it was expected that he could be granted bail with certain conditions, so this court’s decision is like a big setback for him.
