Bengaluru: Indian spinner Amit Mishra was on Tuesday arrested in connection with an assault case lodged against him by a Mumbai-based film producer.

Mishra was taken into custody by Bengaluru police after a three-hour long interrogation session. He was, however, later granted bail.

“Following his arrest, Amit Mishra has been released. It was a bailable offence,” said Bengaluru DCP Sandeep Patil.

A police case had been filed against Mishra on the complaint of assault by a Mumbai-based film producer and he had been asked to appear for questioning, police said on Tuesday.

“We have filed an FIR (first information report) against Mishra on the basis of the complaint Vandana filed on September 27 and issued a notice asking him to appear before our investigating officer within a week,” Bengaluru Deputy Commissioner of Police Sandeep Patil told reporters.

According to the complaint, Mishra abused and assaulted Vandana with a kettle at a five-star hotel on September 25.

“We have also sent a copy of the notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in Mumbai, as Mishra was attending a preparation camp the board held in the city for the Indian team,” Patil said.

As Vandana had known Mishra over the last three years, she went to meet him at the hotel where he was staying during the camp.

The right-arm spinner plays for the Indian team in Tests, One-Days and T20s.

Online food ordering and delivery platform Swiggy on Monday said it would use privately-run ICICI Bank to allow its delivery fleet to make digital payments.

“Through the use of Unified Payment Interface (UPI)-based solution for instant fund transfers and automated cash deposit machines at ICICI Bank branches and ATMs across the country, the delivery fleet will have a hassle-free way of transferring funds,” the company said in a statement. Swiggy operates with a fleet of over 20,000 delivery persons delivering food from over 25,000 restaurants across 12 cities.

With cash-on-delivery being a widely used method of payment on the platform, the digital payment methods allow the delivery men to quickly transfer the funds to Swiggy, saving their time, according to the statement.

“With the delivery fleet being the backbone of Swiggy, the adoption of the digital payment solutions will support the ease of operations and save their time and thousands of kilometres of travel,” said the company’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Rahul Bothra in the statement. The digital payment methods will also help in preventing any cash leakages, the company said.
