Police file supplementary charge sheet against Somnath Bharti


Delhi Police filed on Saturday supplementary charge sheet against former Delhi law minister Somnath Bharti for his midnight raid in Khirki extension area of south Delhi.

A Delhi court on Wednesday had fixed 15 October for hearing Bharti’s plea seeking registration of a First Information Report pertaining to a probe into the raid in January 2014.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Bhupesh Kumar deferred the hearing for 15 October after the public prosecutor could not attend the hearing as he was said to be busy elsewhere.

Bharti last month filed the application challenging a magisterial court order that dismissed his plea for registration of an FIR against unidentified police officials under charges dealing with framing of incorrect record and making false charge of offence with intent to injure, among other things.
