Expected Kejriwal to hear me out: Somnath Bharti’s wife

New Delhi, June 15 (IANS) Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Somnath Bharti’s wife on Monday said she expected Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at least to hear her out in the case of domestic violence involving her husband.

“I expected Kejriwal to give me a fair chance and at least listen to me,” Lipika Mitra, who has filed a complaint of domestic violence against her husband, told media.

On June 10, Mitra approached the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) alleging that the AAP leader had been abusing her ever since their marriage in 2010.

Mitra said she wanted no “reconciliation” with the former Delhi law minister and instead wanted an FIR registered against Bharti “after he made comments that he had no relations with me for last five years”.
