NEW DELHI: Delhi BJP today accused Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of "protecting" AAP leader Somnath Bharti in the case of his alleged misbehaviour with African women during the Khirki Extension midnight raid episode in January, 2014.

In a statement here, Delhi BJP President Satish Upadhyay said that instead of making allegations against Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and others for sanctioning the prosecution of Bharti, Kejriwal should concentrate on "disciplining" the former law minister.

He also said that Bharti's recent remarks about "beautiful women" was highly objectionable.
