Non-bailable warrant against Somnath Bharti,denies anticipatory bail

Delhi,september 15: A trial court on Monday issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against Aam Aadmi party legislator and former law minister Somnath Bharti, who faces a case of attempt to murder and domestic violence. The case was filed by his wife Lipika Mitra.

Bharti's plea for anticipatory bail was rejected by Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Sanjay Garg observing that it was the second complaint lodged against the MLA by his wife Lipika Mitra,
 who had alleged that he did not mend his conduct despite assurance before the
Crime Against Women Cell. Among other sections of the Indian Penal Code, Bharti is also booked under section 307 (attempt to murder), which leads him to punishment of up to 10 years in jail.

While Bhartis counsel has the option to move Delhi High court in order to acquire a stay on his arrest, senior officials of Delhi Police told that the AAP MLA will be served NBW if he fails to surrender within the 24 hours allotted to him by the trial court.
