Delhi's Tis Hazari court today (June 22) extended judicial custody of Bibhav Kumar for the next 14 days. He was produced through video conferencing before Metropolitan Magistrate Gaurav Goyal of Tis Hazari Court on the expiry of his previously extended judicial custody. He was remanded to judicial custody on May 31 after his interrogation in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Swati Maliwal's alleged assault case.

A court in the national capital extended till July 6 (Saturday) the judicial custody of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's aide Bibhav Kumar. Kumar is accused of assaulting AAP Rajya Sabha MP and former Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women, Swati Maliwal on May 13 at the chief minister's official residence.

Kumar was produced through video conferencing before Metropolitan Magistrate Gaurav Goyal who extended his judicial custody till July 6. Kumar was arrested on May 18 (Saturday). He was sent to police custody for five days the same day by a magisterial court, which

observed that his anticipatory bail plea had become infructuous because of his arrest. Earlier, his bail was dismissed by the judge.

On May 24, he was sent to four days judicial custody, following which he was again remanded in police custody for three days.

An FIR was registered against Kumar on May 16 under various Indian Penal Code provisions, including those related to criminal intimidation, assault or criminal force on a woman with the intent to disrobe and attempt to commit culpable homicide.

The Delhi Police had moved an application seeking an extension of Kumar’s judicial custody. While his counsel opposed the plea, the prosecution said that Kumar might interfere with the current investigation. 

On May 17, Swati Maliwal filed a complaint with the Delhi Police, revealing the extent of harassment and torture she faced at the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence. She had visited the CM's residence on May 13.
