अभी कुछ देर पहले मेरे घर पर कोई हमलावर घुस आया और उसने हमला किया। मेरी और मेरी माँ की गाड़ी बुरी तरह से तोड़ दी और घर में घुसने की कोशिश की। शुक्र है मैं और मेरी माँ दोनो घर पे नहीं थे, वरना पता नहीं क्या होता! कुछ भी करलो, मैं डरूँगी नहीं। @DelhiPolice को कम्प्लेन कर रही हूँ। pic.twitter.com/yQZSoMJl8s

The DCW chief shared information about the alleged attack and posted pictures of the damaged cars on his Twitter handle. The number of attackers is not yet known. Maliwal’s residence is in the Civil Lines area of North Delhi.
The DCW chief also released his video statement regarding the incident. In the video, Swati Maliwal also expressed the apprehension of something untoward with her. He said, “This morning, an assailant barged into my house and attacked. The attacker ransacked my and my mother’s car. At the time of the accident, my mother and I were not at home, otherwise we don’t know what would have happened.”
In the video, Maliwal is heard saying, “In the last seven years of my tenure (as DCW President), I have done many great things and have taken action against powerful people. They think they will scare me, but let me just say that I am not scared. I will not be scared at all and will continue my fight against those who work against women.”
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reacted to the incident saying the situation of law and order in Delhi is bad, in an indirect attack on the Delhi Police, which comes under the Union home ministry. “…Even the chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women is not safe. There are open murders. I hope that LG Sahib (LG VK Saxena) will also give some time to fix the law and order situation,” read Kejriwal’s tweet.
