Shankar Mishra absconding, gave fake address for ticket booking

Mishra was booked by Delhi police on Wednesday but he was absconding.

On Thursday, Delhi police team's visit to Mumbai for nabbing Mishra went in vain. The police on Thursday realised that the man had falsified his address while booking the flight tickets.

According to certain media reports, accused Shankar Mishra, had shared the address to his relative's apartment that he has rented out. The report stated that Mishra's relative, who resides in Ahmedabad, informed the police that the accused lives in Lucknow.
