Aakash | 16 Jan 2014

In an rare incident newly appointed Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti had a little scuffle with Law himself, when he has gone to raid a place near 'South Delhi Khirki Extension' in Delhi in the connection that prostitution that has been going freely in that area itself, police who shows no interest in raiding that place and instead try to convince the Minister to drop the idea as this is no time for raiding anywhere.

The police officials said that Bharti tried to force them to conduct a search on a building late on Wednesday night without a warrant, and question women, which is prohibited after dark. The minister says in "emergency situations", a warrant is not necessary.

The Law minister alleged that a sex trade and drug peddling racket was going in the locality with the help of foreign nationals, involving mostly Nigerians. Bharti also had a hot argument with an assistant commissioner of police, even as his supporters created a lot of commotion.

The law minister said that “they didn't even listen to me. How will they listen to people? The girls tried to run away. But we caught two of them”. Police has left us in the situation, all this is going under police nose, and this shows how much helpless Delhi police actually is”.
