Two days after Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Swati Maliwal made a shocking allegation that she was molested and dragged by a drunk car driver, it has become a massive political controversy.
The BJP has claimed that the accused, Harish Chandra Suryavanshi, is a prominent Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker in Sangam Vihar.
Delhi BJP working president Virendra Sachdeva tweeted a picture showing Suryavanshi campaigning with AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal.

“It has become clear that the incident was a conspiracy by the Aam Aadmi Party to defame Delhi internationally by showing the national capital as an unsafe city for women,” Sachdeva said.
Conspiracy to defame Delhi, Delhi Police
Union minister Meenakshi Lekhi claimed the allegation was part of a conspiracy by AAP to defame the national capital and the Delhi Police, which comes under the Central government.
The Delhi BJP on Saturday demanded that Maliwal should be suspended by the Lieutenant Governor for a fair police probe of her alleged molestation charges.
Suspend Maliwal from DCW
In a letter to Lt Governor VK Saxena, Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor requested him to suspend Maliwal till the completion of the police inquiry into the incident of alleged molestation with her on January 19.
“…Social media reports on this, as well as media reports, indicate that the eve teaser involved Harish Chandra Suryavanshi is an active worker of Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party from Sangam Vihar,” the BJP spokesperson said.
“This development revealing eve teaser’s connection with Aam Aadmi Party has exposed Swati Maliwal and she will try her best to influence the police inquiry in the matter by using her constitutional office,” Kapoor alleged.
Will keep fighting till alive: Maliwal
Maliwal, who rejected the allegations against her, said on Saturday that she will keep fighting till she is alive.
“Let me tell those who think that they will scare me by telling dirty lies about me. I have done many big things in this short life, with a shroud on my head. I was attacked many times, but did not stop. With every atrocity, the fire inside me grew stronger. No one can suppress my voice. I will keep fighting as long as I am alive!” Maliwal said in a tweet.

What happened on January 19?
On Thursday, Maliwal claimed that while conducting an inspection near the All India Institute Of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi, a drunk man in a car made inappropriate comments at her and dragged her for 10-15 metres.
“If the Chairperson of the Women’s Commission is not safe in Delhi, then one can only imagine the situation for other women,” Maliwal had said.
