The Delhi High Court on Tuesday cleared AAP MLA and former Delhi government minister, Somnath Bharti, of all charges of domestic violence. While quashing the charges, the clourt said that Bharti and wife Lipika Mitra were living happily together.
This comes after the High Court in the past allowed Bharti’s wife to withdraw her petition that sought the cancellation of the bail granted to her husband.
Reacting to the development, Bharti said, “Lipika joins me in informing one and all that we have bounced back because of the love we share. We are thankful to everyone for their good wishes and also forgive the ones, who tried to keep us apart for their malicious intentions.
“I want to humbly ask why was a simple issue between husband and wife blown up like this? What was the reason behind painting me as a demon in a case of marital misunderstanding? There can be countless reasons behind misunderstanding in an institution of marriage, but simply because I am a public representative and MLA of AAP that I was hounded like this.”
