New Delhi: Allahabad High Court is set hear the plea of BJP MLA Rajesh Mishra’s daughter Sakshi Mishra and her husband Ajitesh Mishra over their demand for security. The hearing is set to take place at 11am in Justice Siddharth Verma’s Court. The couple had sought protection from the girl’s father.

Justice Verma decided July 15 as the date for hearing as the couple was not present in court during the hearing on Thursday. In her plea Sakshi and her husband have said that MLA father is unhappy with their marriage, because the girl is a Bhramin and the boy is a Dalit, therefore their lives are at stake.


The petition said the MLA and the police should allow them to live in peace as they are both adults and had married out of their free will. However, the MLA has rejected his daughter's charge.  "Whatever is going on against me in the media is wrong,'' he said in a statement issued Thursday.
My daughter is an adult and has the right to take her own decisions. Neither I nor my men or any member of my family has given any threat to life to anyone," Misra said.

"I and my family are busy in our work. I am doing the people's work in my constituency and presently running a BJP membership campaign. There is no threat to anyone from me," he said.

Deputy Inspector General R K Pandey had said earlier that he has asked the Bareilly police chief to provide security to the couple. But he added that police did not know the couple's current location. Sakshi Misra had also appealed to other MPs and MLAs to not side with her father, also known as Pappu Bhartaul, on the issue.
