Swati Maliwal controversy


On Monday morning, Delhi Police said that they received a call from Arvind Kejriwal's residence in which the caller said she was assaulted there.

In the second call, she identified herself as Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal. Later in the day, Maliwal visited the police station but did not file any complaint.

Three days, she registered a complaint following which the Delhi Police registered an FIR. Kumar has been named as an accused in the case, officials said.

In her FIR, Swati Maliwal alleged that Kejriwal's PA Bibhav Kumar slapped her at least 7-8 times with full force. "In order to protect myself, I pushed him away with my legs. At that time, he pounced on me, brutally dragged me and deliberately pulled my shirt up," Swati Maliwal's complaint read. Bibhav then repeatedly kicked her on her chest, stomach and pelvis area.

"I repeatedly told him that I am having my period and he should please let go of me as I am in unbearable pain. However, he attacked me with full force again and again. I somehow managed to get free. I then sat on the sofa of the drawing room and gathered my spectacles that had fallen on the ground during the assault," the FIR read.
