    • The incident happened on May 13 and the FIR was registered on May 16 but no clarification was given for this. No record has been given as to when she (Swati Maliwal) went to the Chief Minister's residence. 
    • She went to the chief minister's residence on her own will, not on anyone's call. There is no mention of when she went to CM's house before May 13, and also what was the purpose of going?
    • It's election time, the CM is busy, has has got interim bail for a limited time. 
    • The time when she went to the Chief Minister's residence was not the official time to meet anyone. She did not go to the Chief Minister's office but went to his residence, and sat on the sofa in the drawing room.
    • Delhi Police responds immediately the 112 calls, but based on what was told to Delhi Police on the call, FIR was not registered immediately. 
    • If someone gets hurt, he immediately seeks medical help from the police and is taken to the hospital, in this case they didn't wait for police.
    • It's not possible that there is no response to the call of 112 in Civil Lines area and it goes blank because the Chief Minister's residence and LG's office are there.
    • If someone who was beaten so much that she could have died does not take any medical treatment, how can this happen?
    • The CCTV camera of CM office is under the control of Delhi Police.
    • Delhi Police lawyer raised objection and saying CCTV camera is under PWD.
    • She met the SHO but if there was a deep injury on her body then why did the SHO not seek any medical sheet.

    On the arrest of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's aide Bibhav Kumar, his father Maheshwar Rai says, "This is injustice. My son is a simple man... There is BJP Government in power, it can do whatever it wants...They are telling him to abandon Arvind Kejriwal, then he will not be harmed. But he has been with Kejriwal for the last 15 years, but I have never heard any complaint against him... I spoke with him over phone, he told me that he was having his breakfast and she (Swati Maliwal) came to do something big. Guards stopped her and he went there. Guards removed her from there. He didn't touch her even once. He only told her that he won't let her meet Kejriwal without asking him. Hearing this, she got angry and threatened him..."

If he thinks that he will assault Swati Maliwal and the law won't say anything then I think they are not only mentally bankrupt but also facing character bankruptcy... PM Modi has zero tolerance towards crime. If you assault a woman, then you will be punished."
