  • The AAP, in response to the allegations made by Swati Maliwal, posted a series of videos on its social media handle of platform X on Saturday that stated, "This video exposes the truth behind Swati Maliwal's allegations."

  • The audio further states, “Her clothes are also not torn which she claimed in her complaint. In the second video, which is of four days after the incident she can be seen staging a drama and she even started limping after the FIR got registered. A wheelchair is also brought for her. What kind of a game is this?”
