AAP MLA Somnath Bharti was arrested in Uttar Pradesh's Rae Bareli on Monday. He was arrested for allegedly making derogatory remarks against CM Yogi Adityanath. This came shortly after a man threw ink at the AAP leader as he was leaving a guest house. The events were slammed by AAP, which alleged that Bharti was first attacked and then framed. Bharti had reached Rae Bareli on Sunday night to inspect its state-run primary schools. He was stopped by the police when he was leaving the guest house on Monday morning. The MLA from Delhi's Malviya Nagar has been sent to 14-day judicial custody by a court in Sultanpur.
