Swati Maliwal assault case: As the Delhi Police is tightening its screws on Arvind Kejriwal’s Personal Assistant Bibhav Kumar in the Swati Maliwal assault case, he filed a counter complaint against the AAP MP on Friday (May 17) alleging that she is trying to falsely implicate him and she had breached the security of the CM’s residence to gain unauthorised entry on May 13 and created a ruckus there. He also alleged that when he tried to stop her, she hurled abuses at him.

In a complaint filed via an email to the Civil Lines Police Station SHO, a day after the police registered a case against him and constituted teams to trace the PA, Kumar said that Maliwal was attempting to falsely implicate him by alleging an assault at the CM’s official residence when she had gone to meet Kejriwal, days after he was released from Tihar Jail.

Kumar also sent a copy of his complaint to the Deputy Commissioner of Police (North).

What did Kumar say in his complaint?

According to the complaint, when Kumar tried to stop her, she hurled abuses at him intending to physically assault him and is now trying to create undue pressure on him by “falsely implicating” him.

Maliwal has already filed an FIR against Kumar alleging that he assaulted her when she had gone to meet Kejriwal at his official residence on May 13.

Kumar in his complaint said Maliwal barged into Kejriwal's residence on May 13 by telling security personnel that she was a Rajya Sabha MP. "Despite requests by security officers to wait until he gets the details of her appointment verified, she forcibly entered the CM's residence despite the objections," Kumar said in his complaint.

She trespassed despite repeated objections by security personnel and CM office staff, the complaint said.

Kumar claimed in the complaint that when he entered the main building of the CM’s residence at 9.22 am, he found Maliwal sitting in the drawing room.

"Kumar approached Maliwal and politely requested her to follow the proper procedure for meeting the chief minister. To this, Maliwal started screaming and shouting at Kumar, and hurled abuses. She said: 'tumhari himmat kaise hui...ek MP ko rokne ki....tumhari aukat kya hai? (How dare you to stop an MP)'," the complaint stated.

Maliwal ignored the requests and started walking from the drawing room towards the inner parts of the residence, Kumar said in his complaint.

Maliwal intended to harm Kejriwal: Kumar in police complaint

Kumar claimed that Maliwal intended to harm Kejriwal and he strongly “objected”, after which she became angry and sat on a sofa and dialled the police control room. She started levelling false allegations, the complainant said.

Kumar said that when he requested Maliwal to leave the CM's residence, she said "Main tujhe dekh lungi...main tujhe aese joothe case mei fasaungi ki tujhe zindagi bhar jail mei sadaa dungi ....(I will trap you in a false case and you will spend your whole life in prison)".

The PA said that he called the security officers in the main building and they too urged her to leave. She left the premises at 9.35 am, the complaint said.

Kumar has alleged that Maliwal trespassed, breached security of the CM's residence, prevented government officers from discharging their duty and assaulted him. Therefore, she is liable for action as per the law, he said.

Kumar said, "You (SHO) are requested to take appropriate legal action against Maliwal. Since it is election time, all of this may have been done at the behest of the BJP and it is therefore, requested that her call records, chats and interactions with BJP leaders should also be investigated."

Bibhav said, "I am ready to cooperate in every investigation. I found out through media that FIR has been lodged. No notice has been given to me yet. Delhi Police should also take cognizance of my complaint," he said.
