AAP MLA Somnath Bharti booked
In fresh trouble, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Somnath Bharti has been booked for allegedly inciting a crowd to damage AIIMS’ fence and misbehaving with the hospital’s security personnel. However, the former Delhi Minister has denied the charges.
The chief security officer of AIIMS gave a written complaint on September 9 stating that “Bharti provoked a mob to damage the fence of the hospital with JCB at Gautam Nagar Nallah road in order to give access to unauthorised persons inside AIIMS property and also misbehaved with security personnel” at around 9.45 am, said a senior police officer on Sunday.
The medical examination of six security personnel was conducted and a case under IPC Sections and 3/4 Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act has been registered against Bharti at the Hauz Khas police station, added the officer.
Meanwhile, Bharti tweeted, “AIIMS is lying. They have been denying legitimate access to Gautam Nagar residents. AIIMS even refused to PWD meetings. Wherever common man will be troubled I will go. D allegation that residents dismantled the wall is a blatant lie. I will fight in court.”
