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.

Children are prone to miss school more when their mothers experience high physical violence, according to a new study.

Published in the Maternal and Child Health Journal, the research found that 23.3 per cent of women who experienced intimate partner violence (IPV) reported their child’s school attendance was disrupted due to IPV.

“Our analysis allows us to identify patterns of IPV experience, such as those who experience more physical violence and injuries, and determine how these different patterns of IPV affect disruptions in school attendance,” said study researcher Anna M. Scolese from George Mason University in the US.

The study used baseline data from a sub-sample of 659 women in Mexico City who recently experienced IPV and reported having a child under age 18.

Researchers identified four distinct classes of IPV experiences: Low physical and sexual violence; low physical and high sexual violence, high physical and low sexual violence and injuries; and high physical and sexual violence and injuries.

“Our results show that children of women who experience high physical violence and injuries – with or without sexual violence- are at greater risk of school disruption. In short, if a mother experiences high physical violence and injuries from intimate partner violence, this is more likely to affect a child’s school attendance,” Scolese said. (IANS)
