A city court has ordered registration of FIR against unknown persons in connection with the midnight raid against African women by a group after Delhi law minister Somnath Bharti accused the foreign nationals of being involved in drugs and prostitution. Metropolitan magistrate Chetna Singh directed that video footage of the incident in south Delhi last week be shown to the foreign nationals for identification. The FIR will be filed against those identified by the foreign nationals. TV footage on news channels had shown Bharti asking police officers to conduct the raid.
