After AAP leader Kumar Vishwas failed to appear before the Delhi Commission for Women following summons issued by it, DCW chief Barkha Shukla Singh wrote to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Lt-Governor Najeeb Jung and Commissioner of Police B S Bassi, seeking their intervention in the matter.
Singh, in a letter on Wednesday, stated that while the commission was hearing a complaint filed by a “distressed woman”, who had asked Vishwas to come clean on rumours of an alleged relationship between the two, “unscrupulous elements clandestinely sent to the DCW are creating deliberate hurdles and chaos” in the commission’s proceedings.
“What is more surprising and shocking is the fact the fact that Arvind Kejriwal and Kumar Vishwas are pre-strategically (sic) sending AAP workers to create a ruckus in the commission,” the letter alleged.
Singh said that she wrote to the home minister so that he can ask the Lt-Governor or the police commissioner to put an end to disruptions of the DCW’s proceedings.
About the case before the commission, Singh wrote that the woman had approached the commission with a complaint against Vishwas for “mental and psychological torture requesting him to declare publicly that there is no illicit relation between them so that her disuniting family (sic) is again united and immoral accusations against her are cleared in public”.
The complainant and her husband were both present before the commission on Wednesday. Vishwas, however, did not show up.
On Tuesday, the commission issued fresh summons to Vishwas after he claimed that he had not received any notice from the commission.
Singh said, “I had a four-hour counselling session with the complainant and her husband. After that he agreed to let her back into their house but he said that unless Vishwas clarifies on the issue, he will not talk to her or maintain any relation with her. Vishwas is not in town but when he comes back, I will sit with him and resolve this issue. We can go to any extent to reunite a woman’s family.”
