Arvind Kejriwal’s aide Bibhav Kumar Denied Bail

On Monday, Delhi’s Tis Hazari Court denied Bibhav Kumar, an advisor to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, bail in the Swati Maliwal alleged assault case.

Kumar is in judicial custody after being detained by the Delhi Police following a FIR filed by Swati Maliwal. He is accused of attacking her at Kejriwal’s home on May 13.

Maliwal, who was also present in the court during the hearing, broke down while the defence counsel was arguing in the case. 
“They have a huge troll machinery, they have pumped the machinery, she said in the court. 

“The accused was taken to Mumbai and Lucknow by the leaders of the party. If this accused is released on bail there would be a threat to me and my family,” she added.

Maliwal, who was recently elected to the Rajya Sabha, alleged that Bibhav Kumar is not an ordinary man, he getting the facilities used by the ministers.

During the hearing, Kumar’s counsel N Hariharan argued that Maliwal went to Kejriwal’s residence and called Bibhav Kumar, who was not present at the CM’s house. He alleged that Maliwal headed towards the CM’s residence without any permission or prior appointment.

“Can anyone enter in this manner, this is the official residence of CM,” Hariharan argued. There was a trespass and a report was also filed.”

“She had no appointment for a meeting, and there was no message of her arrival,” he argued.

He further submitted that she was stopped by the security staff after which she asked them “You will make an MP wait,” the senior Advocate referred to the report.

Rajya Sabha MP Maliwal has alleged that she was assaulted by Kejriwal’s personal assistant Kumar when she had gone to meet the CM at his residence on May 13. Kumar had been in police custody after being arrested on May 18.
