The Delhi police is unlikely to record statements of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s parents in the alleged Swati Maliwal assault case, sources in the force told ANI.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal alleged that the Delhi police will visit his residence on Thursday to interrogate his parents. However, Kejriwal did not add further details or mention the reason. "Tomorrow, Delhi Police will come to interrogate my old and ailing parents," he said in a post in Hindi on X on Wednesday.

Aam Aadmi Party leaders questioned the move and alleged the entire case is BJP’s conspiracy. “All limits have been crossed as CM Kejriwal’s old and ailing parents have been called for questioning today. Has the prime minister stooped so low that old parents are being harassed? The people of Delhi will give an answer to this through their vote. This whole thing (Swati Maliwal assault case) is a conspiracy by the BJP,” ANI reported quoting Delhi Minister Atishi.

AAP’s Rajya Sabha MP Swati Maliwal had alleged she was attacked by Kejriwal’s aide Bhibav Kumar at the Delhi CM’s residence on May 13. Delhi police have arrested Kumar and have also collected CCTV recordings from CM’s residence as part of the probe.
