AAP MP Swati Maliwal alleges assault by Kejriwal’s PA, accuses him of physical violence

Swati Maliwal revealed that Arvind Kejriwal was present in house when his PA physically assaulted Swati

AAP Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal arrived at Delhi’s Tis Hazari Court around noon on Friday to give her statement on the assault by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s PA, Bibhav Kumar. Three days after the incident at the CM’s residence, Maliwal filed a complaint and spoke out about the assault.

Maliwal shared her experience on X, stating, “What happened to me was very bad. I have given my statement to the police on the incident that happened to me. I hope that appropriate action will be taken. The last few days have been very difficult for me. I thank those who prayed for me.” She also addressed those who doubted her, saying, “Those who tried to assassinate my character, said she was doing it on the instructions of the other party, may God keep them happy too.”


The MP had been unreachable for two days after she reported the assault, claiming she made several frantic calls to the police from Kejriwal’s residence. She initially visited the Civil Lines police station but did not file an official complaint. Senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh met her on Wednesday to address her complaints.

In her statement, Maliwal accused Bibhav Kumar of slapping, kicking, and beating her with a stick, then punching her in the stomach and chest. A medical examination revealed internal injuries to her face. Maliwal noted that Kejriwal was present in the house when the assault occurred.

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has summoned Bibhav Kumar to appear at their office on May 17 at 11 am. When he failed to appear, NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma stated that an NCW team would visit his residence if he did not show up by Saturday. Kumar was seen with Kejriwal and Sanjay Singh at Lucknow airport on Thursday. Kejriwal continued to Punjab on Friday for election campaigning.
