Swati Maliwal Assault Case: Kejriwal's PS Bibhav Kumar Sent to Judicial Custody

In a new development in the Swati Maliwal assault case, a Delhi court has ordered Bibhav Kumar, the personal secretary of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, to judicial custody till May 28. The decision came on Friday after Bibhav Kumar's police custody ended.

The case stems from an incident on May 13, when Bibhav Kumar was accused of misbehaving with AAP MP Swati Maliwal at Kejriwal's residence. Following Maliwal's complaint, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) was formed, leading to Kumar's arrest on May 19.

In a twist to the case, Bibhav Kumar also filed a counter-complaint against Maliwal, alleging forced and illegal entry into Kejriwal's residence on the same day.

The incident initially unfolded with a series of PCR calls to the Delhi Police, reporting an assault inside the CM's residence. Subsequently, Swati Maliwal visited a police station but left without filing a written complaint. Days later, she filed an FIR against Bibhav Kumar, alleging he slapped her multiple times, dragged her, and kicked her in the chest, stomach, and pelvis area.

The court's decision to send Bibhav Kumar to judicial custody underscores the seriousness of the allegations and the ongoing legal proceedings in the case.
