Somnath Bharti unsuccessful before magistrate, to stay in jail till 19 October

A court today extended, till 19 October, the judicial custody of Delhi’s former law minister Somnath Bharti in a domestic violence case filed by his wife Lipika Mitra.

A magistrate’s court remanded Bharti in 14 days judicial custody after he was presented before it after expiry of his one-day judicial custody.

Meanwhile Bharti moved his bail application before a sessions court. It will be heard on Tuesday.

Bharti surrendered to police on last Monday evening and was arrested. He was named in an FIR filed on 10 September following a 10 June complaint by his wife who said he had been abusing her since their marriage in 2010.
