Crime Scene: A car driver dragged DCW Chief Swati Maliwal for 10-15 meters
Swati Maliwal, chief of the Delhi Commission for Women, was dragged for 15 meters by a drunken car. This incident took place late Wednesday night near AIIMS Hospital, when Swati had gone out to do a reality check on the streets of Delhi. In the case, the police have arrested the accused Harish Chandra.
Swati went out on the streets to check reality, then the incident happened. Swati gave information about the incident that happened to her by tweeting on Thursday i.e. today. He said that an inebriated car driver came to him and insisted on sitting her in his car. When Swati refused, he took the car and went ahead, but after some time again took a U-turn and started walking beside. After this he started molesting. When Swati caught him, he closed the windows of the car. During this, Swati’s hand got stuck, but the accused did not stop. He kept dragging Swati for about 15 metres.
Questioning the law in order of Delhi, Swati said that God has saved my life. If the Chairperson of the Women’s Commission is not safe in Delhi, then what will happen to the general public?
DCP Chandan Singh of South Delhi said in the matter that Swati had complained about the incident at Hauz Khas police station. When the matter was investigated, the accused was identified as 47-year-old Harish Chandra. He has been arrested and further investigation is underway.
Here it is worth mentioning that on the night of 31 December 2022, Anjali was dragged by a car for about 12 kilometers in Delhi, due to which she died. Swati Maliwal had demanded a CBI inquiry into the matter. She also raised questions on Anjali’s friend Nidhi.
Swati had said that when Anjali had an accident, Nidhi was also with her, but she ran away leaving Anjali in agony. Swati had said that I think it is very important to investigate her phone. All his phone records should be checked. Anjali was crying out, asking for help, but still Nidhi did not help her.
It is noteworthy that Swati Maliwal is the chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women since 2015. Her tenure has been extended three times in a row. She has written letters to the PM on many issues of women harassment. She has opposed this when Ram Rahim came out of jail on parole and has written a letter to the PM demanding amendment in the parole rules.
