Rajya Sabha MP for the AAP, Swati Maliwal, has accused the Delhi Chief Minister's assistant Bibhav Kumar of assault. She has also threatened to initiate a lawsuit against Delhi ministries and AAP leaders for "spreading lies" about a "corruption FIR" that was filed against her.


Per an ANI report, Swati Maliwal took to social media platform X claiming that her status in the party changed from "Lady Singham" to "BJP agent" right after she filed a complaint against now-arrested Kumar. "According to them, I was 'Lady Singham' until I filed a complaint against Bibhav Kumar and today I have become a BJP agent? "I will take you to court for every lie you spread!" Maliwal said in a post on Monday. She further added, "Since yesterday, Delhi ministers are spreading lies that an FIR has been filed against me for corruption and that I did all this on the instructions of BJP. This FIR was lodged 8 years ago in 2016 after which both the CM and LG appointed me as the Chairperson of the Women's Commission twice more. The case is completely fake on which the Hon'ble High Court has stayed for 1.5 years, who have accepted that no money transaction has taken place."



She then said, "They're putting my relatives' lives in danger by tweeting their details using their car numbers. Well, lies don't last long. But in the intoxication of power and in the passion to bring someone down, lest it happens that when the truth comes out, you are not able to look even your family in the eye. I will take you to court for every lie you spread!".

The case in question concerns the allegation that Bibhav Kumar, Kejriwal's former personal assistant, assaulted Swati Maliwal at the Chief Minister's residence. Sources claim that earlier on Monday, Delhi Police brought Bibhav Kumar to the chief minister's house and staged the crime scene there. Kejriwal's former PA was then arrested on Saturday in this case. After being presented to the Tis Hazari Court, he was placed under five days of police custody.

Maliwal, in her complaint, alleged that Bibhav "slapped" her "at least seven to eight times" while she "continued screaming" and "brutally dragged" her while "kicking" her in her "chest, stomach and pelvis area." On Friday, Bibhav filed a counter-complaint with the police, alleging that Maliwal had entered the chief minister's Civil Lines home "unauthorisedly" and had verbally abused him.

Meanwhile, on May 25, elections will be held in all seven of Delhi's seats. On June 4, the votes will be tallied. The last two elections have seen the BJP win each of Delhi's seven seats. This time around, the AAP and Congress have agreed to share seats, with the former running for four seats and the latter for three.
