New Delhi: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders of circulating ‘edited’ videos of Swati Maliwal which were shot on the day when she alleged that CM’s aide Bibhav Kumar brutally assaulted her at his residence in the national capital. 

The BJP alleged that it was done to malign the image of Maliwal. Earlier in the day, the Delhi Police arrested Bibhav Kumar. A couple of videos from the chief minister's house have gone viral on social media, one of them showed Maliwal engaging in a heated argument with security personnel, while other showed her being escorted out of the CM's residence in the Civil Lines.

Sachdeva said now that Kejriwal's former PA has been arrested by police, many "dirty pages" of AAP's politics will be exposed.
If the AAP is trying to implicate Maliwal by circulating "edited" videos, it would be better for the Delhi Police to immediately take possession of the complete CCTV footage of the chief minister's residence, Sachdeva said.
