The Madhya Pradesh government suspended him after the rape case was filed against him. A Mansarovar police officer said that a Jaipur police team arrested AIG Mishra from Bhopal and brought him to Jaipur on Thursday. He was then produced in the court and sent to jail. According to the police, the victim lodged the case against AIG Mishra with woman police station in Jaipur in 2014.

She came in contact with AIG Mishra regarding her husband’s case. Mishra called her on March 7, 2012, to the officer’s mess on the pretext to help her get her husband released from the jail. The woman alleged that he raped her there. Mishra also demanded a bribe of Rs 10 lakh. Her husband was released in May 2012. Mishra allegedly raped her in Jodhpur, Jaipur, Indore, Kochi, Mumbai, and Delhi. He used to call her and threaten that if she will not come to him, he would again arrest her husband. The woman stopped answering his calls after which Mishra again arrested her husband in 2013.
