Following allegations of domestic violence levelled against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Somnath Bharti by his wife Lipika Mitra, the Delhi Police on Wednesday assured that appropriate action will be taken in the case.
“These kinds of matters are kept confidential. Her problems are being heard and proper action would be taken,” Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi told media here.
Earlier in the day, the Delhi Commission for Women served notice to AAP leader Somnath Bharti after his wife Lipika Mitra accused him of domestic violence.
Lipika has alleged that she has been facing violence at the hands of Bharti since 2010 and has said that she wants a separation in order to live with her children ‘with dignity’ Somnath Bharti, however, refutes the allegations.
