Somnath Bharti had approached the Delhi High Court on Wednesday challenging his conviction and a two-year sentence in a case of assault on AIIMS security staff.
AAP MLA Somnath Bharti was sent to jail on Tuesday after a Delhi trial court convicted him for assaulting an AIIMS staffer in 2016
The FIR was registered on the basis of a complaint field by R S Rawat, Chief Security Officer, AIIMS.
Somnath Bharti was arrested for criminal intimidation and promoting enmity between groups, police said.
Justice Chander Shekhar allowed Bharti's plea to quash the criminal case after noting that Bharti and his wife Lipika Mitra are living happily together.
An AAP leader, on condition of anonymity told Outlook that the state leadership wouldn’t have made such a pact with Congress without the blessings of Somnath Bharti, who is in-charge of Kerala.
Additional chief metropolitan magistrate Samar Vishal passed the directions after the AAP politician and others pleaded not guilty and said they will face trial.
Bharti has moved the application in a pending plea filed by his wife against the trial court's October 7, 2015 order granting bail to him in the domestic violence case lodged by her.
