Swati Maliwal assault case Highlights: Tis Hazari Court in Delhi on Sunday granted Delhi police 5-day custody of Bibhav Kumar to question him in connection with the alleged assault on AAP Rajya Sabha member Swati Maliwal.

Delhi Police had sought seven-day custody to question him.

On Saturday night, Bibhav Kumar, the aide of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, was produced before a magisterial court after his arrest. Later, police told the court that since he was arrested, his anticipatory bail also becomes "infructuous". 

During the custody hearing, Bibhav Kumar's counsel told court that Delhi Police was distorting facts, and Swati Maliwal went to CM's residence on her own and didn't inform anyone about purpose of visit.

However, Delhi Police accused Bibhav Kumar of attempting to destroy evidence at CM's residence and said that his custody was necessary for questioning him about reason of assault.

According to a senior police officer, Kumar was taken into custody from the chief minister's residence by a Delhi Police team around noon.

Reacting to Kumar's arrest, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that Prime Minister Modi is playing 'Jail ka Khel' with the Aam Aadmi Party.

"I would like to tell the Prime Minister - you are playing this 'jail ka khel'. Tomorrow, I am coming to the BJP headquarters with all my top leaders, MLAs, and MPs at 12 noon. You can put in jail whoever you want," Arvind Kejriwal said.

Earlier in the day, AAP leader Atishi said in a press conference that the BJP's anti-corruption bureau had filed a case against Swati Maliwal regarding the illegal recruitment of contractual employees in DCW.

In her complaint, Maliwal has alleged that Kejriwal's Personal Secretary Bibhav Kumar "slapped" her "at least seven to eight times". At the same time, she “continued screaming" and “brutally dragged" her while “kicking" her in her “chest, stomach and pelvis area."

The Medico-Legal report from the Jay Prakash Narayan Trauma Centre at AIIMS showed that Swati Maliwal had bruises over her left leg and her right cheek, PTI reported.

The report stated that Swati Maliwal had a bruise the size of 3x2 centimetres over the "proximal left leg dorsal aspect" and another bruise the size of 2x2 centimetres over her “right cheek below her right eye."
