Swati Maliwal Assault NCW Summons Kejriwal Aide Bibhav Kumar

New Delhi: The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Thursday summoned Bibhav Kumar, former PS to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, to appear before it tomorrow (May 17).

"The National Commission for Women has taken suo motu cognizance of the media post captioned 'DCW chief Swati Maliwal accuses Arvind Kejriwal's personal secretary of assaulting her,' wherein it was reported that Ms. Swati Maliwal, RS MP and former DCW chief, has alleged that the Pvt Secretary of Shri Arvind Kejriwal had brutally assaulted her at the CM's residence," the NCW said in its letter.

Meanwhile, Kumar was seen accompanying Kejriwal at the Lucknow airport on Wednesday. He was also seen with AAP senior leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh at the airport.

According to reports, Sanjay Singh has been asked to mediate in the matter. Swati has demanded strict action against Kumar, sources added.

On May 13, Swati Maliwal accused Bibhav Kumar of assaulting her at the CM's official residence in Delhi. She is yet to file an official complaint in the case.

Maliwal, on May 13, went to the Civil Lines Police Station and alleged that a member of the Delhi Chief Minister's personal staff "assaulted" her at the Chief Minister's official residence, police officials said.

Following this, AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh met party colleague Swati Maliwal on Wednesday, even as the BJP sharpened its attack on the AAP supremo, asking him to come clean and demanding action against the guilty.

On the other hand, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal evaded a question on Swati Maliwal during a press conference on Thursday, while Akhilesh Yadav asserted that there are more important issues to address than discussing the assault on Swati Maliwal.

Instead of responding to a reporter's question during a press conference, Kejriwal handed over the microphone to Akhilesh Yadav, who dismissed it by saying, "there are more important things."
