New Delhi (India), May 7 (ANI): A Delhi court on Tuesday quashed an FIR against AAP MLA Somnath Bharti in a domestic violence case filed by his wife Lipika Mitra.
The Court accepted Somnath Bharti's plea to clear the criminal case after noting that Bharti and his wife are living happily together. The court also said that the woman has no objection if Bharti is cleared of the charges.
Mitra had on June 10, 2015, filed a complaint against Bharti with Delhi Commission for Women following which an FIR was lodged by the police on September 9, 2015.
The AAP MLA from Malviya Nagar Assembly faces allegations of trying to kill his wife and endangering the life of an unborn child which his wife was carrying by unleashing his dog on her. (ANI)
