Former Delhi law minister Somnath Bharti, who was arrested in a domestic violence case filed by his wife, was on Tuesday sent in a two-day police remand by a Dwarka court.

The court allowed the AAP MLA to carry food, medicines and fruits while in police custody after he filed an application seeking some relaxation saying he is diabetic.

Bharti's wife Lipika Mitra had filed an FIR at Dwarka North police station in west Delhi, alleging that he had been beating and torturing her since their marriage in 2010.

Bharti had surrendered on Monday night after the Supreme Court refused his application for anticipatory bail and asked him to surrender.

Bharti has been booked under several charges, including attempt to murder, cruelty towards wife, voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapon, criminal breach of trust, attempt to cause miscarriage without woman's consent, cheating and criminal intimidation.
