Maliwal reached police stn at 10.30am, left without filing FIR

Maliwal’s allegation that she was beaten up at the behest of Kejriwal also angered many partymen.

Maliwal reportedly arrived at CM’s residence at 9-9.10am. She wanted to meet the CM but was allegedly denied by his personal staff and security. This led to the fracas and Maliwal sought police help. According to sources, Delhi Police’s control room received a call from Maliwal at 9.24-25am. "This is Swati Maliwal, MP, calling from 6 Flag Staff Road. Bibhav has assaulted me on the CM's instruction," she said in the call which was logged.

The PCR log states: “Caller bol raha hai ‘main abhi CM ke ghar par hu, unhone apne PA Bibhav Kumar se mujhe buri tarah pitwaya hai’.” It was the SHO of Civil Lines who had reached CM's residence with his team. Maliwal, cops said, reiterated her complaint and was requested to come to the police station. She was seen boarding an auto from near CM’s resi dence around 9.50am. She was reportedly heading for some other place but reached the police station around 10.30am to lodge an FIR. However, she received a few calls there after which she stood up within a few minutes of her arrival and said she had to leave, cops present there said. Around 10.50am, Maliwal boarded another auto and left the station saying she would come back.

A former video journalist with a magazine, Bibhav Kumar is one of Kejriwal’s most trusted aides. He has also faced ED’s scrutiny in the excise policy-linked money laundering probe besides the case related to alleged irregularities in DJB. In Feb, ED conducted raids at 12 locations, including those connected to Kumar and AAP lawmaker ND Gupta. Last month, it had questioned Kumar in the excise policy case as well. Recently, the directorate of vigilance had terminated Kumar’s services as personal secretary to the chief minister.

Maliwal, who was previously listed as a star campaigner for Delhi, has not found a place in Punjab star campaigners’ list, evoking a response from BJP. “Instead of an inquiry being ordered, she has been removed from the star campaigner list,” said Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva.

“Our ideology may be different from that of Maliwal but it can’t be ignored that she has worked for women, including getting illegal spas closed,” said another party functionary, Tajinder Bagga.
