Swati Maliwal accused of attack on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's house: Delhi Police

Police sources said that the Delhi Police received two consecutive calls on Monday morning, both from the Chief Minister's residence in Civil Lines. The caller, claiming to be AAP leader Swati Maliwal, dialed emergency services after allegedly being assaulted.

In one call, which was made around 9:30 am, the caller claimed that he was assaulted by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's aide, Bibhav Kumar.

However, sources said when the police team reached the spot and brought Maliwal to the station. According to protocol, Delhi Police cannot enter the Chief Minister's House without prior permission.

DCP North Manoj Meena said, “A PCR call was received at 9:34 am from a woman in PS Civil Lines stating that she had been assaulted at the Chief Minister's house. MP Madam PS Civil Lines came after some time, but she left saying she will file a complaint later.”

Visited the Chief Minister's House, then called the policemen

Police sources said that Swati Maliwal arrived at the Chief Minister's residence around 9:10 am today to meet Arvind Kejriwal. However, he was denied a meeting by his personal staff.

Then, at 9:31 am, Maliwal contacted the police control room for help. His call was later transferred to the North Control Room at 9:34 am.

India Today TV accessed a police diary entry detailing two PCR calls that were allegedly made from the Chief Minister's residence. In the first call, the caller claimed to be at the Chief Minister's residence, where the Chief Minister had a fight with his aide, Bibhu Kumar.

Police said they corrected the diary entry after receiving the second call. Identifying the caller as a woman, the entry said she was “in the Chief Minister's House, where she instructed her aide Bibhu Kumar to beat her brutally”.

Bibhav Kumar was the personal assistant of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He was sacked last month after being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate in a case in which he was accused of obstructing official work.

Swati Maliwal met the police officials.

The North Control Room immediately dispatched officers to the Chief Minister's House, and the Station House Officer (SHO) also reached the Chief Minister's residence shortly after.

According to police sources, after a discussion with the SHO, Maliwal agreed to accompany the police to the station. Meanwhile, the news of attack on Maliwal started circulating.

Sources said that after the interrogation period, Swati left the Maliwal police station. No written complaint has been filed yet.

India Today TV contacted Swati Maliwal for her statement, but she was not available.

Reacting to the alleged incident, BJPIT cell in-charge Amit Malviya said in a post on X, “Remember, Swati Maliwal has maintained radio silence on Kejriwal's arrest. In fact, she is currently in India. And didn't come back for a long time.”

Swati Maliwal is the former Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women. After that she became a member of Rajya Sabha. Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party nominated him.
