In a fresh development, a Delhi court today granted bail to Aam Aadmi Party leader and MLA Somnath Bharti who was arrested in connection to a domestic violence and attempt to murder case filed by his wife Lipika Mitra.

Bharti on 6 October had termed the domestic violence and attempt to murder case against him as a "BJP-sponsored litigation".

Additional Sessions Judge Anil Kumar after hearing the arguments on Bharti's bail had reserved the order for today.

Bharti's advocate Vijay Aggarwal had claimed it was a case of an "on-and-off relationship" which was blown out of proportion due to political motives and alleged that it was a "BJP-sponsored litigation".

His lawyer had also claimed that the bail was important as the AAP leader has also to look after his aged parents.

The police had registered an FIR against Bharti under sections 307 (attempt to murder), 498A (cruelty towards partner in marriage), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapon), 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC.
