Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Kumar Vishwas on Saturday rubbished the case filed against him for molestation charges.
The case against Vishwas has been filed by the same woman who, in May this year, had approached the DCW alleging that her life was ruined since the AAP leader was not rebutting “rumours” about their alleged illicit liaison. This had prompted the DCW chairperson Barkha Singh to hold news conference and criticise the AAP leader.
Speaking to jantakareporter.com, the senior AAP leader said, ” first she wanted me to just issue a clarification as, by her own admission, there was no allegation against me. Now that even the DCW has told the High Court that there was no case against me, this lady has come up with a case of molestation. This is nothing but a cheap ploy by my political rivals.”
He said, he wasn’t overly worried about this new allegation as, according to him, ‘jald hi doodh ka doodh aur paani ka paani ho jaayega.’
Vishwas said, ” is film mein nayak bhi wahi hai, chehra bhi wahi, is baar nayi patkatha ke saath. I know who these people are. These BJP leaders should be courageous and fight their political battle with me openly. What they are doing is utterly cowardice.”
When asked which BJP leader in particular he suspected was behind this, Vishwas said the world knew it was Shazia Ilmi. “Only she can stoop this low,” he added.
Only last month, Delhi High court had dropped all charges against Vishwas after the same girl had approached DCW against him. DCW, then headed by Congress’ Barkha Singh, later informed the Delhi HC that they had dropped all charges against the AAP leader because they couldn’t find anything wrong against him.
It also added that the case against Vishwas was now closed.
