How throw forbidden exception from middleware in laravel5

0 votes

I am writing a middleware in laravel 5. I want to throw a forbidden exception with code 403 from middleware. My middleware function is given below:

use Exception;

public function handle($request, Closure $next)
    if (!Auth::check()) {
        throw new Exception("Access denied", 403);
    return $next($request);

I am calling my middleware from controller and I am getting error message with code 500 but not 403. How can I resolve this?
