AAP MLA Somnath Bharti faces arrest in connection with a domestic violence and attempt to murder case lodged by his wife as the Delhi High Court on Tuesday (September 22) declined to grant him anticipatory bail. “This petition (for anticipatory bail) is dismissed,” Justice Suresh Kait said. Soon after the order was pronounced, advocate Vijay Aggarwal, who appeared for Bharti, told the media that the MLA can be arrested, “but there are other legal remedies and many doors are still open”. The high court had on September 17 reserved its verdict while protecting Bharti from arrest till pronouncement of its order. The court had also pulled the MLA for going to the police station at late night, saying, “If he loves going to police station, then I will send him from here….Once you (Bharti) get relief, you act like a lion and go here and there.” Bharti had moved the high court seeking protection from arrest after a trial court denied him anticipatory bail and another court issued a non-bailable warrant against him. Bharti’s plea for anticipatory bail was rejected by trial court observing that it was the second complaint filed against the MLA by his wife Lipika Mitra, who has alleged that he did not mend his conduct despite assurance before Crime Against Women Cell of the police.
