The Delhi Police have taken statements from all staff members present at Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's residence on May 13, related to the alleged assault of AAP MP Swati Maliwal, ANI reported on Tuesday, citing sources. The police have sent all electronic gadgets recovered in the case to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for further investigation, they added.
In her complaint, Swati Maliwal alleged that Kejriwal's aide, Bibhav Kumar, “slapped” her “at least seven to eight times” without provocation and “brutally dragged” her while “kicking” her, causing her to fall and hit her head on a table at the CM’s residence on May 13.
Kumar has filed a counter-complaint, accusing Maliwal of forcefully entering the CM’s premises and using abusive language. He is in police custody until May 23.
On Monday, the Delhi Police took Bibhav Kumar to the drawing room of Kejriwal's residence to reconstruct the sequence of events from the morning of May 13. The police documented the sequence of events, mapped the answers, and took photographs of the crime scene, officials said.
On Tuesday, a five-member special investigation team (SIT) from the Delhi Police took Bibhav Kumar to Mumbai to retrieve data from his formatted iPhone. The police claim that Kumar formatted his phone before transferring the data to someone or some device in Mumbai.
Bibhav Kumar was arrested on Saturday at Kejriwal's residence, two days after a case was registered against him under sections 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide), 341 (wrongful restraint), 354(B) (assault or use of criminal force to a woman with intent to disrobe), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 509 (word, gesture, or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code.
