In yet another arrest of an AAP leader, MLA Somnath Bharti was arrested on Thursday for allegedly assaulting security guards at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, news agency ANI reported.

Earlier this month, an FIR was registered against Bharti and his supporters for allegedly misbehaving with security guards of AIIMS. The case was registered at Hauz Khas police station in the national capital.

The case was registered based on a complaint by Chief Security Officer of AIIMS RS Rawat. Rawat, in his written complaint said that Bharti, at around 9.45 am on September 9 “provoked the mob to damage the fence of government property (AIIMS)”.

“Bharti gave permission to unauthorised persons with JCB machines to get access inside AIIMS from Gautam Nagar Nallah road side and misbehaved with security personnel,” said a police officer, citing Rawat’s complaint.

Somnath Bharti himself announced his arrest on Twitter.
