somnathNew Delhi: Former Delhi law minister Somnath Bharti surrendered before Delhi Police on Wednesday to join the investigation in a case of domestic violence registered against him by his wife Lipika Mitra.

On Wednesday, while presenting himself before Delhi police, Bharti rubbished the domestic violence case filed against him by his wife, saying he has audio and documentary evidence which would reveal the truth.

He told media, “I have audio and documentary evidence which will bring out the truth and prove that all the charges against me are false. The charge of attempt to murder has been put against me by the woman who says ‘sweetheart, when will you come home? I will take care of you’ in a text message. This message was send to me by her (Lipika) on February 25, 2015. Can you imagine a wife calling her husband in such a way if he is trying to murder her,” asked Bharti, whose anticipatory bail was denied by a trial court but was given relief till Thursday by the Delhi High Court.

Bharti, an Aam Aadmi Party legislator from Malviya Nagar, further said that he was not hiding from law and was only trying to save himself from Delhi Police that was “acting on the orders of the centre”.

Earlier, Bharti had approached the Delhi High Court for anticipatory bail on Tuesday, and surrendered hours after he was given protection against arrest till September 17. The AAP MLA is facing a non-bailable warrant on charges of domestic violence and attempt to murder by his wife.

Following a late night brainstorming session on the issue with party members, Bharti is believed to have been asked to join police investigation.

If taken into custody, Bharti will be the fourth AAP MLA to be arrested. In the last four months, AAP MLAs Jitendra Singh Tomar, Manoj Kumar and Surinder Singh have been arrested by Delhi Police in different cases.
