ANI Photo | Swati Maliwal assault case: Delhi Police seize CCTV DVR from Delhi CM’s residence

In a major development in the alleged assault case of AAP Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal, the Delhi Police seized the CCTV DVR from the residence of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday.
A team of about a dozen policemen from Delhi Police reached the CM’s residence today.
According to Delhi Police sources, police did not receive proper CCTV footage to analyse the sequence of crime, due to which the DVR has been confiscated. After confiscating the DVR, a seizure memo was also handed over to the CM residence.
As per the sources, Delhi Police will now retrieve the footage of the DVR with the help of technical experts and then an attempt will be made to analyse the sequence of crime.
“Delhi Police also suspects that there may be some tampering with the DVR or its hard disk. However, it will be clear only after the DVR retrieves the data,” the sources said.
Earlier, on Saturday, Kejriwal’s personal aide, Bibhav Kumar, was arrested for the alleged assault on the AAP Rajya Sabha MP, Maliwal.
Maliwal, in her complaint, alleged that Bibhav “slapped” her “at least seven to eight times” while she “continued screaming” and “brutally dragged” her while “kicking” her in her “chest, stomach and pelvis area.”
After his arrest, Bibhav was produced before Delhi’s Tis Hazari Court, which remanded him in police custody for five days.
The former aide of the AAP supremo earlier emailed Delhi Police, stating that he was ready to cooperate in the ongoing probe into Maliwal’s assault claim while adding that they should also take cognizance of his complaint.
Bibhav lodged a counter-complaint with the police on Friday, accusing Maliwal of gaining ‘unauthorised entry’ into the CM’s Civil Lines residence and ‘verbally abusing’ him.
In his complaint, Kejriwal’s former PA charged Maliwal with unauthorised entry, verbal abuse, and threats while also claiming the BJP’s involvement in the matter
