Cops Collect CCTV Evidence From Kejriwal’s Residence in Maliwal Case


According to sources, a Delhi Police team visited Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s official home on Sunday as part of their investigation into the alleged assault on AAP Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal.


They claimed that the police team gathered electronic equipment, such as a CCTV DVR (digital video recorder), in an attempt to obtain video of the alleged attack on Ms. Maliwal on May 13, at the CM’s house, by Mr. Kejriwal’s close aide, Bibhav Kumar.

Ms Maliwal has alleged that the CCTV footage of the CM’s residence was being tampered with.

Following his arrest on Saturday, Mr. Kumar appeared in court and was placed under five days of police custody. According to the sources, Mr. Kumar gave evasive answers when being questioned.

Following Ms. Maliwal’s complaint, the Delhi Police arrested Mr. Kumar on charges of molestation and attempted culpable homicide.
