New Delhi, July 27: FIR has been registered by Delhi police on Tuesday against Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal for allegedly revealing the identity of the Burari rape victim. However on Monday, Maliwal had strongly criticised the Delhi Police's handling of the Burari case. She had already asked the Centre to set up a high-level ministerial committee on women safety under the leadership of Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
As the police registered FIR against Swati Maliwal, Delhi BJP has written the letter to LG of Delhi Najib Jung and complained about the negligence of Maliwal in various matter. BJP acclaimed that being the chief of DCW, revealing the name of rape of victim is a crime and also gave various examples of how Maliwal is supporting AAP MLAs and MPs even though they are alleged with many serious cases. BJP through letter asked LG to suspend Maliwal from the designation or to ask her for resignation.
Meanwhile, Maliwal through her twitter account have said that she is not scared of any FIR as she is a protestor. Maliwal strongly opposed Delhi Police and centre for not taking any strict action against accused or any effective measure yet not taken for protection of women.
A 14-year-old Dalit girl died on Sunday at a Delhi hospital after being forced to drink a corrosive substance by a rape accused. The girl was kidnapped by the accused before she was scheduled to testify against him at a local court for allegedly raping her. The Dalit girl was again raped by the accused repeatedly, and she was forced to drink a corrosive substance by his maternal aunt and uncle. The substance badly damaged her internal organs and she was immediately admitted to a hospital.
