"The complaint of Lipika Mitra, wife of Somnath Bharti, was filed at office of the DCP of South West district in Dwarka. It has been transferred to the Crime Against Women Cell for further investigation and report," a senior police officer said.

Lipika has levelled same allegations against Bharti that she had filed in her complaint to the Delhi Commission for Women yesterday.

"Me and my children are subject to harassment and torture -- mental, physical and oral -- by my husband Somnath Bharti... There is a persistent threat from my husband and his supporters," she had said in her complaint to the DCW. The couple has two children and Lipika lives separately in Dwarka along with the kids.

She was later sent to Deen Dayal Upadhayay hospital for medical examination of her injuries, which she claimed to have been inflicted by her husband, police sources said.
No FIR has been registered in the case as police officials would consult their seniors in the Police Headquarters (PHQ) today to decide the further course of action, they added.
Bharti was yesterday slapped with notices by DCW asking him to appear before it by June 26.
