AAP refuses to take any proactive action against Somnath Bharti till probe gets over
Aam Aadmi Party has made it clear that it was not going to take any proactive action against its Law Minister Somnath Bharti. The party has said that it would wait for the outcome of the probe.

Notably Bharti is under fire from all across for leading a group which threatened and tried to attack some Ugandan women while suspecting they are involved in sex and drug racket being run in a South Delhi. Bharti is also accused of racial attack.

When AAP's spokesperson Prof. Anand Kumar was asked whether they are in pressure to sack Somnath Bharti, he said, “How can we take such action like this, there's a investigation going on and we are waiting for the result of the probe.”

Prof. Kumar added that if Bharti would be guilty then only action will be taken against him.

“If he would be found guilty in that case than necessary action will be taken. But merely on the basis that someone is demanding his resignation, we are not going to take any action.”

Opposition parties including the Congress and BJP are demanding action against the Delhi's law minister.

Somnath Bharti who was accused by the Ugandan womaen for assaulting them, allegedly barged into their houses, and manhandled them on the suspicion of sex and drug racket. Bharti's troubles increased after one of the women identified him and claimed that he was the one who led the 'midnight raid' at her house last week.

The woman has recorded her statement in camera under Sec 164 CrPC which is admissible in court.

Not only the opposition parties but the women rights groups like National Commission for Women, All India Democratic Women Association and Delhi Commission for Women have also asked action againt Somnath Bharti. The Delhi Commission for Women also summoned Bharti in the case.
