Delhi BJP demands probe into Swati Maliwal's assault charge against Kejriwal's PA

New Delhi/IBNS: Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva has demanded an investigation into the assault allegation brought against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's Personal Assistant Bibhav Kumar by AAP Rajya Sabha Swati Maliwal, media reports said.

Sachdeva said as quoted by The Times of India, "It is regrettable that within Delhi, there is a Chief Minister who first got his Chief Secretary beaten up at his residence and now his female associate has been assaulted."

"Many prominent women like former IPS officer Kiran Bedi, Shazia Ilmi and Richa Pandey have left him due to his anti-women politics," he added.

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.

Maliwal, a former Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson, was elected as the AAP MP from Rajya Sabha in January 2024.

She was in the news a few days ago after 223 DCW employees were sacked by Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena in a major crackground against the city government.

It is alleged that Maliwal as the DCW chairperson made those appointments violating rules.

The Lieutenant Governor's office claims 223 new posts were created without the approval of the LG while it has a sanctioned strength of 40 posts.

In a strong response to the sacking, Maliwal said, "Maliwal, the former DCW chairperson, "LG sahab has issued a Tughlaqi order to remove all the contract staff of DCW. Today, the Women's Commission has a total staff of 90 out of which only 8 people have been provided by the government, the rest are on 3-month contracts. If all the contract staff is removed, the Women's Commission will be locked. Why are these people doing this?

"This institution has been built with blood and sweat. Instead of appointing staff and giving protection, you are destroying it from its roots? I will not let the Women's Commission be closed as long as I am alive. Put me in jail, don't torture women!"
