NCW directs police to obtain call records of CM in Maliwal assault case

Tuesday, 28 May 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has directed the Delhi Police to obtain the call records of all individuals, including Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in the alleged assault of AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal on Monday.

The commission has claimed that Kejriwal’s former PA Bibhav Kumar, who has been accused of abusing Maliwal, was called to the chief minister’s residence after she reached there and sought details on whose direction he was called. In a press note issued on Monday, the NCW emphasised that this update follows its earlier communication dated May 13, 2024, where it took suo moto cognizance of a media post titled “DCW Chief Swati Maliwal accuses Arvind Kejriwal’s personal secretary of assaulting her.”

According to the report, Maliwal, the former DCW chief, alleged that she was assaulted by Kumar. The NCW has revealed that during Maliwal’s visit to the chief minister’s residence, Kumar was summoned after her arrival.

Further, to clarify the circumstances and directions under which Kumar was called, the NCW has called for an investigation into the Call Detail Records (CDR) of all involved individuals, including the chief minister. In a post on X (formerly Twitter), NCW stated, “It has come to our notice that Mr. Bibhav Kumar was reportedly called after the arrival of Swati Maliwal at CM’s residence. A letter from Hon’ble Chairperson @sharmarekha has been sent to Commissioner of Police Delhi to take CDRs of relevant individuals, including the CM, to ascertain on whose direction Bibhav Kumar was summoned.”

In a post on Sunday, Maliwal shared that she has been getting rape threats even since youtuber Dhruv Rathee made a one-sided video against her and despite her trying to reach him, he has been avoiding him. Keeping this in mind, the NCW has insisted on stringent action against individuals, who have been issuing rape and death threats to Maliwal.
