CCTV footage collected from CM House by Delhi Police

On May 19, Delhi Police visited CM Arvind Kejriwal’s residence regarding Swati Maliwal’s assault case. CCTV footage and DVR were collected.

Swati’s Statement: “Until yesterday, you were Lady Singham, today you’ve become BJP’s agent?”

On Monday night at 9:49 PM, Swati Maliwal posted on X, stating, “Delhi ministers have been trying to cover up corruption allegations against me, so I’ve pointed to the BJP. This FIR was filed in 2016, and later, both the CM and LG appointed me as the chairperson of the women’s commission twice. This case is completely false, and the High Court has stayed it for 1.5 years, acknowledging that no bribe was taken.”

Swati’s further statement: “Until I filed a complaint against Bibhav Kumar, I was considered AAP’s Lady Singham. Now, I’ve become BJP’s agent. When I revealed the truth, the troll army targeted me because I spoke the truth. I’ve been advising everyone in the party that if you have any evidence against Swati, send it, don’t leak it.”

Swati Maliwal further wrote: “By tweeting details of my car numbers, they are putting my life at risk. While it’s not a big deal, no one should feel insulted in the pursuit of power. When the truth comes out, you can’t even face your own family members. For every false accusation spread by your (AAP) party, I’ll take you to court.”
