The Delhi High Court Tuesday quashed an FIR accusing AAP MLA Somnath Bharti of domestic violence. Justice Chander Shekhar allowed Bharti’s plea to quash the criminal case after noting that Bharti and his wife Lipika Mitra are living happily together.

The court also noted that the woman has no objection if the FIR is quashed. It had earlier allowed Bharti’s wife to withdraw her petition seeking cancellation of the bail granted to him in the domestic violence case in view of the settlement of their marital dispute.
