Domestic violence case: Delhi Police issues notice to Somnath Bharti

New Delhi, Sept. 11 : The Delhi Police on Friday issued a notice to former law minister Somnath Bharti to join the probe in the domestic violence case levelled against him by his wife Lipika Mitra.

Mitra, who met Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi earlier today, said that she wants justice.

“I gave him (Somnath Bharti) five years, which is ample time. Now, I just want justice,” she said.

The Delhi Police had registered a case against Somnath Bharti, after he was accused of domestic violence and mental torture by his wife.

The case was registered against Bharti under Sections 307, 323 and 498A of the Indian Penal Code.

Lipika Bharti has been married to Somnath 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.
