Amid ongoing political slugfest over the alleged assault on Swati Maliwal, a CCTV footage of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Rajya Sabha MP's heated argument with the staff at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's house on May 13 surfaced online on Friday.

Maliwal, who has accused Arvind Kejriwal's personal assistant Bibhav Kumar of allegedly kicking and slapping her multiple times, reacted to the viral CCTV footage and said that the truth would emerge.

“This 'political hitman' is making efforts to save himself. Truth will emerge after CCTV footage of Delhi CM's residence, drawing room is investigated,” said Maliwal in a post on X.

Without naming anyone, Maliwal also said that this time also, this ‘political hitman’ has started efforts to save himself  by making people post videos without any context.

"He thinks he can save himself by committing this crime," Maliwal further added.

“Who makes a video of someone being beaten up? The truth will be revealed when CCTV footage of the house and the room is checked," said the AAP MP, adding, “God is watching everything.”
