New Delhi: On Thursday, Delhi Police booked AAP legislator Somnath Bharti on grounds of domestic violence, months after his wife Lipika Mitra filed a complaint against him alleging domestic abuse.

Bharti, has been named in a First Information Report (FIR) filed under several sections,of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) which include domestic abuse at Dwarka North police station in West Delhi.

Police said they filed the FIR naming the Former Law Minister following the June 10 complaint of Bharti’s wife Lipika Mitra.

“It was alleged by Mitra that Bharti has been abusing her ever since their marriage in 2010. She had also claimed that Bharti beat and tortured her and even tried to kill her once,” said a police official.

Bharti has been accused of letting his dogs loose at his wife and their child, according to an official. Sources close to him confirm that he was “shocked at the development” as he was regularly in touch with his wife through SMS till Thurday morning. Bharti himself could not be contacted to confirm this.

Somnath Bharti instead, blamed the police for conspiring against him and framing him under unreasonable charges.

On July 7, the court had dismissed an anticipatory bail petition by Bharti saying that it was “premature” as no FIR had been filed against him. His wife, Lipika Mitra has in addition, registered a complaint against her husband to the National Commission for Women for allegedly abusing her.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
