During the proceeding, Delhi Police officials told the court that the summons had been returned unserved as when they had gone to Mishra's residence, his security guard told them that the Congress MP and his family had gone out of Delhi.
Apart from these four accused, the others who have been charge sheeted by the police in the case are – Pradeep Sehrawat, Devender, Sunil, Surendra and Satinder.
These five accused are out on bail and were present in the court today.
The names of Mishra and his family members were mentioned in the column 2, meant for the suspects but without evidence against them, of the supplementary charge sheet filed later by the police.
A magisterial court in 2008 and a sessions court in 2010 had declined to summon Mishra in the case on the ground of lack of evidence and legal provisions.
The Delhi High Court in 2012, however, set aside the trial court's order and directed it to consider the case afresh after the girl's father moved the High Court seeking initiation of prosecution of Mishra and his family members, and also one Kanshi Ram, for their alleged involvement in the case.
The High Court had set aside the orders of the sessions and the magisterial courts, saying they were "not based on proper appreciation of the material available on record."
