NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Somnath Bharti's lawyer Vijay Agarwal on Tuesday said that his client would now move the Supreme Court in connection with the domestic violence case filed against him by his wife Lipika Mitra.

Bharti's lawyer made this remark soon after the Delhi High Court rejected the Malviya Naga MLA’s anticipatory bail plea in this case.

“We will move the Supreme Court immediately. We said that it was a matrimonial case and so the marriage should not be broken down. If the husband goes to jail then the future chances of reconciliation get marred. That’s why we are hoping that court would consider it sympathetically,” Agarwal told ANI here.

Bharti was earlier named in an FIR filed under several Sections of the Indian Penal code (IPC), including domestic violence and attempt to murder.

Lipika has been married to Bharti since 2010, but has been living separately from him since 2012 along with the couple's two children in a rented accommodation in Dwarka.
