Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Swati Maliwal has brought forth grave accusations against Bibhav Kumar, an aide of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, alleging a distressing episode of assault.

Maliwal, in her complaint, alleged that she was assaulted by Bibhav Kumar, who is reportedly an aide to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The incident allegedly took place at the Chief Minister’s residence.

Maliwal claimed that Kumar slapped her 7-8 times on the face and hit her chest, stomach, and sensitive parts. “Bibhav came and started abusing and kept slapping without provocation,” Maliwal said in her complaint.

“I was in a terrible state of shock at this attack. I was deeply traumatised and called the 112 number and reported the incident,” Maliwal stated in the FIR.

Last night, Delhi Police accompanied Maliwal to the AIIMS Trauma Centre for a medical checkup. Meanwhile, upon reaching Kumar’s residence in Chandrawal Nagar, Delhi Police found that he was missing.

Teams from the Crime Branch and Special Cell are currently actively searching for Kumar.

Delhi Police also filed an FIR last night under multiple sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including assault or criminal force on a woman with intent to outrage her modesty, criminal intimidation, insulting modesty, and assault.

The Delhi Police have registered the FIR and initiated an investigation into the matter. The exact circumstances leading to the alleged assault are currently under investigation.

Maliwal has demanded swift action against Kumar. The incident has sparked a political storm, with opposition parties demanding a thorough and impartial investigation.

The AAP leadership has yet to comment on the incident. The incident has raised serious questions about the safety and security of women in politics..
