Maliwal records statement in assault case, tells police about what happened at CM’s house | India News


NEW DELHI: Delhi Police on Thursday recorded AAP Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal‘s statement in connection with the alleged assault on her by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal‘s aide Bibhav Kumar.
Maliwal’s statement was recorded by a two-member team of the Delhi Police at her residence in Central Delhi.
According to a police officer, Maliwal told police about the incident that happened at the chief minister’s residence on Monday.
The officer said that based on Maliwal’s statement, police might register an FIR in connection with the matter.
The police team, led by additional commissioner of police PS Kushwaha, was at the AAP MP‘s house for more than four hours.
After recording her statement to the police, Swati Maliwal took to X and expressed hope that appropriate action will be taken in the case.
“What happened to me was very bad. I have given my statement to the police on the incident. I hope that appropriate action will be taken. The last few days have been very difficult for me. I thank those who prayed for me. Those who tried to do character assassination, by alleging that that she was doing it on the instructions of the other party, may God keep them happy too,” Maliwal wrote.
She also urged the BJP to refrain from doing politics on the incident.

Earlier in the day, CM Arvind Kejriwal chose to remain silent on Maliwal’s charges and passed on the mic to senior party colleague and UP incharge Sanjay Singh to answer media queries on the issue.
The two were present at Samajwadi Party headquarters with Akhilesh Yadav to address a joint press conference.
On Tuesday, Sanjay Singh had confirmed that CM Arvind Kejriwal’s personal assistant Bibhav Kumar misbehaved with AAP MP Swati Maliwal, saying the party convenor has taken cognisance of the matter and will take appropriate action.
High-voltage drama unfolded at Kejriwal’s house in north Delhi on Monday morning (May 13) after Maliwal claimed in a PCR call that she had been assaulted by Bibhav on Kejriwal’s instructions.
Later, she also went to the Civil Lines police station in order to file an FIR. However, after receiving some phone calls there, she left, telling the cops she would return.
The cops had marked her complaint as “pending” and no FIR was filed.
