In a recent development of the Swati Maliwal assault case, Bibhav Kumar, an aide to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, failed to appear before the National Commission for Women (NCW). The case involves allegations of assault made by the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief, Swati Maliwal, against Kumar.

The incident occurred on September 2, when Maliwal claimed that she was assaulted by the CM’s aide during a meeting at the Delhi Secretariat. She filed a police complaint accusing Kumar of physically assaulting her and using derogatory language. The DCW chief alleged that she was attacked after she questioned the Delhi government’s expenditure on advertisements.

The NCW had summoned Bibhav Kumar to appear before them on September 7 to record his statement regarding the incident. However, he failed to comply with the summons, citing personal reasons for his absence. The NCW has now issued a fresh summons for him to appear on a later date.

This case has sparked a political controversy in Delhi, with opposition parties demanding strict action against Kumar and calling for his removal from the Chief Minister’s office. They argue that the incident reflects poorly on the governance and safety of women in Delhi.

On the other hand, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), to which both Kejriwal and Maliwal belong, has defended Kumar, stating that the allegations are baseless and politically motivated. The party claims that it is a deliberate attempt to tarnish the image of the AAP government.

The Delhi police have registered a First Information Report (FIR) against Bibhav Kumar based on Swati Maliwal’s complaint. The investigation is currently underway, and the police are gathering evidence and statements from witnesses to determine the truth behind the allegations.

The NCW, as an autonomous body established to safeguard women’s rights, plays a crucial role in such cases. Its summons to Bibhav Kumar indicates the seriousness with which the commission is treating Maliwal’s allegations and its commitment to ensuring justice for women.

This incident highlights the ongoing issue of violence against women in India and the need for stringent measures to address it. It also raises questions about the safety and security of women working in government offices. The outcome of this case will be closely watched by the public and could have significant implications for the Delhi government and its administration.
