More trouble is in offing for AAP minister Somnath Bharti as a Delhi court on Sunday ordered the police to register FIR against Delhi’s law minister and others after a Ugandan woman alleged that Bharti and his supporters forcibly entered her house and molested her.
According to reports, the Delhi court’s direction to Malviya Nagar police comes following the complaint of the Ugandan woman who has alleged that a group of people trespassed into her house and molested her.
The court, reports said, has ordered the police to probe the case and submit their report in the next hearing scheduled on February 14.
Bharti has been under fire over alleged harassment of a groupo of Ugandan women by a crowd led by the law minister in Khirki Extension in south Delhi.
Four African women were forcibly held captiveand made to undergo medical tests to find out if they had consumed drugs on the orders of the Law Minister on Wednesday night.
Bharti had charged that Malviya Nagar police did not ooperate with him about conducting a raid on Nigerian nationals whom he alleged were involved in a drugs and sex racket at Khirki village.
Batting for Bharti after his altercation with cops, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused the Delhi Police of “hiding its failures” and not acting on complaints of residents of Khirki village, Extension and Hauz Rani since November last year.
Following the controversy, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Saturday had called a meeting of envoys of African countries and told them that the Centre would take appropriate action.
The least number of women candidates have been fielded by the Congress which has given tickets to just five women contestants.
