Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti, indicted by a court for "tampering of evidence" in a case he appeared as a defence lawyer, has informed the Bar Council of Delhi that he intends to surrender his licence to practice law.
Murari Tiwari, Secretary of Bar Council of Delhi, confirmed that Bharti's application was received last evening and the lawyer's body has asked for his enrollment certificate which is issued when a person is granted the licence to practice law.
"Right now by way of his application, received last evening, he has informed us that he intends to surrender his licence. The process would be complete when he hands over his enrollment certificate, which we have asked for. As soon as his enrollment certificate is received, his licence would be put in a suspended state," Tiwari said.
