Aam Aadmi Party MLA Somnath Bharti was arrested on Thursday for allegedly inciting a crowd to damage AIIMS' fence and misbehaving with the hospital's security personnel earlier this month.
The chief security officer of AIIMS had on September 9 given a written complaint stating that "Bharti provoked a mob to damage the fence of the hospital with a JCB at Gautam Nagar Nallah road in order to give access to unauthorised persons inside AIIMS property and also misbehaved with security personnel".
Bharti, who represents Malviya Nagar seat, has been mired in controversies. He was booked for allegedly obstructing public servants from discharging their duty during his purported midnight-raid when some African women were allegedly molested in 2014. He was also arrested last year after his wife accused him of domestic violence.
More details are awaited.
