AAP MLA booked for rioting, damaging AIIMS property

Controversial AAP MLA Somnath Bharti has been booked for inciting a crowd and damaging the boundary fence of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). 

Six security guards of the institute were injured in the incident that took place on September 9, said sources.

According to the FIR registered by AIIMS chief security officer S S Rawat, Bharti and his supporters tried to use a bulldozer to pull down the boundary wall of the institute in Gautam Nagar.

According to the sources, Bharti and his supporters claimed that the institute had been denying access to the Gautam Nagar residents and that the road belonged to the public.

“They were requested to produce the orders of the competent authority, but they failed to produce any. Further, they were not accompanied by any government official...they adopted unlawful ways to encroach upon the government land,” said the FIR.

However, the Malviya Nagar legislator said, “Modi police is working very well and harassing me. AIIMS is lying. They have been denying legitimate access to the residents. Wherever common man will be troubled I will go.”

‘Fight in court’
He brushed aside the charge of dismantling the wall and said, “I will fight in court.”
Bharti was earlier in the news for a domestic violence case filed against him by his wife and his controversial “raid” to unearth a sex and drugs racket in south Delhi in 2014.
