Somnath Bharti An Embarrassment To AAP, Says Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi:Sept 23; Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said former law minister Somnath Bharti should surrender to police and that by "running away" from arrest, "he is becoming embarrassment for the party and his family".

"Somnath should surrender. Why is he running away? Why is he so scared of going to jail? Now he is becoming embarrassment for party n his family," the Chief Minister said in a tweet.

"He should cooperate with the police," the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener added.

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of Bharti in a domestic violence case filed by his wife Lipika Mitra. The court said Bharti was "not only violent and outrageous at home, but also before the public at large".

Soon after the bail plea was dismissed, Delhi Police raided the legislator's residence and office in Malviya Nagar, but he was missing, police told.
