New Delhi: Former Delhi law minister and AAP MLA Somnath Bharti is in the news again – this time in a domestic violence complaint case.
The wife of a senior party leader Somnath Bharti on Wednesday approached the Delhi Commission for Women, accusing the Malviya Nagar legislator of domestic abuse.
The DCW has issued a notice to Bharti after his wife, Lipika, filed a case against her husband, a former Law Minister in the first AAP government in the national capital.
During the first Arvind Kejriwal government last year, Bharti had courted controversy for his midnight crackdown on African nationals in his constituency.
The complaint against Bharti came a day after Delhi Law Minister Jitendra Singh Tomar resigned following his arrest in fake degrees case.
