The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday vacated its interim stay order on proceedings against Indian leg spinner Amit Mishra in a lower court regarding a case filed by a woman for allegedly physically assaulting and abusing her in a city hotel in September 2015.

Justice Byrareddy vacated the stay on the grounds that it was hampering proceedings in the trial court and directed Mishra to appear before it and make his submissions.

The cricketer had filed a plea in the high court, seeking quashing of proceedings in the trial court and had secured an interim relief. Mishra was arrested in Bengaluru in October 2015 by city police and soon thereafter released on bail.

Anees Ali Khan had made submission for the complainant woman.

The woman in her police complaint had claimed she had known Mishra and the alleged incident took place in a hotel room where the cricketer was staying when he came to the city along with the Indian team for a training camp in September.

The complainant had said she went to Mishra's room in his absence. 

At that time, Mishra also came there and (they) had a heated argument following which, she alleged, the cricketer assaulted her and abused her.

Mishra was booked under Indian Penal Code sections including 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty).
