In a significant development in the ongoing assault case involving Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal, allegations have emerged about the tampering of CCTV footage at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence.

Following the allegations, a comprehensive investigation was initiated by Delhi Police. A team led by Additional DCP Delhi North, along with the SHO of Civil Lines Police Station and a team of forensic officials, was dispatched to the Chief Minister’s residence for scene recreation. The investigation team spent several hours at the residence, conducting videography and detailed scrutiny of the premises, which concluded around 2:15 AM on Saturday.

Backdrop of the Assault Allegations

The allegations of CCTV tampering come in the wake of a written complaint filed by Mr. Bibhav Kumar, an aide to CM Kejriwal, against Ms. Maliwal. Kumar’s complaint included charges of unauthorized entry, verbal abuse, threats, and hinted at possible political motives involving the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) during the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. This complaint has added another layer of complexity to the already charged political environment surrounding this case.
