Lucknow: Justice Om Prakash Mishra was today suspended by the administrative committee of the Allahabad High Court for granting bail to former Uttar Pradesh Minister Gayatri Prajapati, accused in a gang rape case.

All powers of the Additional District and Sessions Court judge have also been seized by the court, after Chief Justice D.B. Bhonsle took a grim view of the bail granted to the Samajwadi Party (SP) leader by the judge.

Mishra was posted in the Protection of Child Sexual Offences (Pocso) Court in Lucknow. He is set to retire on April 30.
