Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Somnath Bharti is likely to be arrested, as the Delhi High Court has rejected his anticipatory bail plea in connection with the domestic violence case filed against him by his wife Lipika Mitra.
Reports suggest that Bharti may now move the Supreme Court.
Delhi Police have sought custodial interrogation of Bharti for conducting a fair investigation into the allegations levelled against him by his wife.
Bharti was recently named in a First Information Report (FIR) filed under provisions of the Indian Penal Code, including domestic violence and attempt to murder.
Lipika has been married to Bharti since 2010, but has been living separately from him since 2012 along with the couple’s two children in a rented accommodation in Dwarka.
