In April, the former Samajwadi Party minister Prajapati was granted bail by a special court in a rape and molestation case. But the Allahabad high Court had stayed the bail granted by Protection of Children from Sexual Offences court judge OP Mishra.

Later, Special Court judge OP Mishra was suspended by the Allahabad HC bench for granting bail. The HC stated that the circumstances under which the bail has been granted as 'highly objectionable'. Further, the High Court had asked Sudhir Agrawal to investigate the matter against OP Mishra.
