In a recent development in the case of alleged irregularities in the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), accused Bibhav Kumar has been taken to Mumbai from Delhi for further investigation. The move is aimed at ascertaining whether he has destroyed any evidence that may be crucial to the ongoing probe.

Bibhav Kumar, who is the husband of DCW chief Swati Maliwal, was arrested by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) earlier this month on charges of irregularities in the recruitment process of the commission. He was subsequently released on bail.

The ACB had earlier conducted a raid at the DCW office and seized documents related to the recruitment process. The agency had alleged that the recruitment process was marred by irregularities and that the rules were flouted to favour certain candidates.

Swati Maliwal has denied the allegations and claimed that the recruitment process was conducted in a transparent manner. She has also accused the central government of targeting her for political reasons.

The case has become a political hot potato with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) accusing the central government of trying to intimidate Swati Maliwal and target the DCW. The party has also alleged that the ACB is acting at the behest of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The BJP, on the other hand, has accused the AAP of trying to shield Swati Maliwal and covering up the alleged irregularities. The party has demanded a thorough probe into the matter and has called for the resignation of the DCW chief.

The controversy surrounding the DCW comes at a time when the AAP government in Delhi is facing several other challenges, including a stand-off with the Lieutenant Governor over administrative powers, a tussle with the Centre over control of the Delhi Police, and allegations of corruption in various departments.

The outcome of the investigation into the DCW case may have far-reaching implications for the AAP government and its credibility. It remains to be seen how the case unfolds and what impact it will have on the political landscape of the national capital.
