Who is Arvind Kejriwal's PA Bibhav Kumar accused of assaulting AAP MP Swati Maliwal?

New Delhi/IBNS: The political heat in the national capital Delhi further soared after Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal alleged she was assaulted by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's PA, Bibhav Kumar.

The Delhi Police on Monday reportedly received two phone calls from Kejriwal's residence alleging an assault on Maliwal.

Maliwal, the former Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson, went to Civil Lines Police Station but didn't file a complaint.

Who is Kejriwal's PA Bibhav Kumar?

Prior to this fresh allegation, Bibhav Kumar was under the ED scanner in the liquor policy scam case and the financial irregularities in Delhi Jal Board.

Bibhav was quizzed by the ED last month. He was questioned to give some clarity in the excise policy case.

In March, he was sacked as the Personal Secretary to Delhi Chief Minister by the Directorate of Vigilance (DoV) which termed his appointment as "illegal".

In a case dated way back to 2007, he was also accused of obstructing a public servant from discharging his duties through "assault and use of criminal force".
