New Delhi: AAP legislators Somnath Bharti and Amanatullah Khan on Thursday got bail from two different courts here, sparking another attack by Delhi’s ruling party on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal expressed surprise that at a time when the Prime Minister should be focussing on the Uri terror attack, his machinery was still targeting the AAP. “I am amazed at a time when PM should be working on Uri, his machinery is working overtime to get AAP MLAs arrested or me implicated in false cases,” the Aam Aadmi Party leader tweeted.

Kejriwal’s reaction came a day after he alleged that police had named him in an FIR related to alleged illegalities in the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) and shortly after courts in Delhi gave bail to two AAP MLAs.

Bharti was granted bail on a personal security bond of Rs 30,000, only hours after his arrest for allegedly damaging a fence at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and misbehaving with its security guards. Bharti was taken into custody from his residence earlier in the day. The former Delhi law minister has denied the allegations.

Another AAP legislator, Amanatullah Khan, was also granted bail. He was arrested a day earlier for allegedly sexually harassing a relative. He was arrested on Wednesday after being called for questioning.
