Former DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal alleges assault by CM Kejriwal's aide at AAP's office

PTC News Desk: BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya claimed on his official X handle on Monday that Swati Maliwal, an AAP Rajya Sabha MP and former Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson, was assaulted by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's personal assistant. The incident allegedly occurred at the ruling party's office in the national capital.

However, neither the DCW chief, the AAP, nor the police have issued any official statements regarding the alleged incident.


Furthermore, no official complaint was filed in relation to the alleged incident at the time of filing this report.

"AAP RS MP and former DCW chief Swati Maliwal claims that the Delhi CM's PA assaulted her. A call was made from the Delhi Chief Minister's residence. Remember that Swati Maliwal maintained radio silence following Kejriwal's arrest. She wasn't even in India at the time and didn't return for a long time," Malviya wrote on his X account on Monday.

However, according to Delhi Police sources, Maliwal made two PCR calls from the CM's residence, alleging that she had been 'assaulted' by Kejriwal's personal assistant, Bibhav Kumar.

DCP (North) Manoj Meena said that the Civil Lines police received a PCR call at 9.34 a.m. from a woman who claimed to have been assaulted at the Chief Minister's residence. After some time, the MP Madam (Maliwal) went to the Civil Lines police station. However, she quickly left after stating that she would file a complaint later."

According to sources, a Delhi Police team responded to Maliwal's phone complaint and went to the CM's residence, but she was not there.

In response to the alleged incident, BJP spokesperson Shazia Ilmi described the Chief Minister's PA as a 'rogue', adding that she was aware of 'dynamics' within the AAP from her time as a member of the ruling party in the Capital.

"There is dirt within the AAP, and I am well aware of it because I used to be a member of the party. I understand how their internal party relations and dynamics work. The dynamics change from time to time. This is not the first time such an incident has occurred; in 2018, former chief secretary Anshu Prakash was similarly assaulted at the Chief Minister's residence. Kejriwal denied the claim at the time, but two of his MLAs were charged in the case," Ilmi said in a personal video on Monday.
