‘Ask Delhi Police not to describe my client as absconder’, says Somnath’s lawyer


Former Delhi law minister Somnath Bharti’s lawyer on Monday requested chief minister Arvind Kejriwal to issue directions to Delhi Police to refrain from describing his client as “absconder”, “professional criminal”, and “hardened criminal”.

The requests were made in a letter written to Kejriwal. However, the Delhi government has denied having received any letter from Bharti’s lawyer.
