Swati Maliwal assault case: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s aide Bibhav Kumar moved High Court seeking regular bail in the Swati Maliwal assault case. The matter is likely to be listed on Friday, June 14. Earlier on June 7, Delhi's Tis Hazari Court had denied him bail in the matter. This was the second bail plea moved by Kejriwal's former PA. Earlier on May 27, he moved his first plea which was dismissed by the Delhi court after hearing arguments of both the sides. Kumar was arrested on May 18 and was sent to judicial custody on June 1.

Swati Maliwal assault case

The alleged incident which took place on May 13 came to the fore when Maliwal allegedly made a PCR call from the CM residence alleging assault on her. She later filed a police complaint a few days later in which she alleged that Kumar slapped her seven to eight times, 'kicked on the chest, stomach, and pelvis area,' at the Delhi CM house while she was there to meet CM Arvind Kejriwal who was out on interim bail for the Lok Sabha Elections 2024.

After the case was registered, Delhi Police seized the Digital Video Recorder (DVR) along with other documents from the CM house and sent it to the forensic lab. Moreover, Kumar was also taken to the drawing room of Kejriwal's residence where he had allegedly assaulted Maliwal, to find out details about the sequence of events that took place on the morning of May 13.

SIT investigating the case

Meanwhile, an SIT was also formed to investigate the case. The SIT led by Anjitha Chepyala, the Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) for North Delhi has been handling the investigation. It also includes three Inspector-rank officers, the officer from the Civil Lines Police Station, where the case was filed.
