Court Grants Bail To Somnath Bharti

AAP MLA and former Law Minister Somnath Bharti was on Wednesday (October 7) granted bail by a city court in a domestic violence and attempt to murder case lodged against him by his wife. “Bail application allowed,” Additional Sessions Judge Anil Kumar said. The court which had reserved its order on the bail plea yesterday, directed Bharti to furnish Rs one lakh personal bond and one surety of like amount. The court also directed Bharti not to leave the country without its prior permission and join the probe as and when called. During arguments on his bail plea, the Aam Aadmi Party legislator had yesterday said the case against him was politically motivated and had dubbed it as a “BJP-sponsored litigation”. Bharti’s counsel Vijay Aggarwal had claimed it was a case of an “on-and-off relationship” which was blown out of proportion due to political motives. Special Public Prosecutor Shailendra Babbar who had opposed Bharti’s bail plea had argued that the legislator had tried to misuse the liberty when he was not in police custody.
