The Delhi Police arrested one person in the case of attack on the residence of Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal in North Delhi’s Civil Lines. 

The unknown assailants had damaged two of her cars on October 17 morning. 

The police arrested one accused identified as Sachin who was found at the spot after the incident. He had vandalised two cars, including her official car. 

Maliwal tweeted about the incident and shared photos of the cars with broken glasses and damaged roofs.

In a tweet, she wrote, “Just a while back, some attacker entered my house…My mother’s car and my car were badly damaged and he also tried to break into my house. Thankfully, my mother and I were not at our home. I don’t know what would have happened otherwise…I will not be afraid. I am complaining to the Delhi Police”. 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reacted to the incident saying the situation of law and order in Delhi is bad, in an indirect attack on the Delhi Police, which comes under the Union home ministry. “…Even the chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women is not safe. There are open murders. I hope that LG Sahib (LG VK Saxena) will also give some time to fix the law and order situation,” read Kejriwal’s tweet.

Meanwhile, the Delhi Police said they have caught the accused and a case is being registered on the complaint of Maliwal.

DCP North, Sagar Singh Kalsi stated that a PCR call was received around 9 am about the incident. When the police reached the spot, they found the accused identified as Sachin who was arrested immediately.  

This comes days after Maliwal had received multiple rape threats after she had written to the Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to oust Bollywood director Sajid Khan from the TV show Bigg Boss. She shared screenshots of the threats online in which the men threatened to “get her raped” because she demanded Khan’s removal over allegations of sexual harassment against him. 

The Delhi Police Cyber Cell had lodged an FIR in connection with the case but made no arrests.
