High drama outside courtroom:

Only hours before court hearing, rumours floated that the couple has been kidnapped from outside the Allahabad court premises; which later turned out that was another couple and not Ajitesh and Sakshi.

The incident took place at 8.30 a.m., hours before the case of BJP MLA Rajesh Misra's daughter Sakshi Misra and her husband Ajitesh Kumar was to be taken up in the court.

According to eye-witnesses, the young couple was seen waiting outside the court gate number 3, early in the day when a black SUV came and pulled in the couple at gunpoint.

BJP MLA Rajesh Misra denies charges:

Soon after BJP MLA’s daughter and her husband approached the Allahabad High Court seeking protection, her Rajesh Mishra denied allegations against him.
The MLA from Bithari Chainpur in Bareilly has, however, said he posed no threat to anyone and his daughter has the right to take her own decisions.
