Delhi court orders FIR after Ugandan national’s complaint over Somnath Bharti’s raid

New Delhi, Jan.19: A Delhi court has ordered the police to file an FIR after a Ugandan national’s complaint alleging that a group of people forcibly entered her house in south Delhi and molested her.

The complaint comes after Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti conducted a midnight raid on Wednesday at a building in Khirki Extension, and reportedly had a brush with the local police.

Bharti and his supporters have been accused of illegally detaining Ugandan women and forcing them to give medical tests.

Bharati alleged that a sex trade and drug peddling racket was flourishing in the locality with the help of foreign nationals.

Based on the complaint filed by the Ugandan national, who has alleged that accused threatened her to leave the place, the court has asked the police to report back to it on February 14.

Bharti had demanded that the police take action against the offenders.

“This is my area, Khirki village. People complained about Nigerian people indulging in prostitution and drugs supply, and the local people were facing trouble because of this,” said Bharti.

Earlier on Saturday, Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin, after a meeting with African envoys said that the behavior shown towards Uganda nationals by a Delhi Minister was condemnable, and that they have ensured the safety of foreign nationals in India to the African envoys.
