Addressing a news conference, Maliwal said, “I’m trying to understand how a prostitution racket worth thousands of crores has been fully operational for years. The daily business of prostitution in GB Road is at least Rs 5 crore. I have got a very credible lead in my investigation that there’s a minister belonging to the central government and an important Delhi-based leader from the country’s important party, under whose patronage this prostitution has been running.”

Maliwal said that she was trying to find out the real people behind the illegal prostitution operational just three kms from the country’s parliament, when FIR was slapped against her.

” I was about to reach the conclusion of the probe and find the real culprit when fake FIRs were registered against me. Now, I’m receiving messages that the central government will have me arrested and removed from my post through the office of LG.”

Maliwal said that the prostitution was a dirty profession, where girls as young as 8-10 years old were being raped and sold.

She said that one girl was being forced o sleep with at least 30 people every night.

The Anti Corruption Branch had registered an FIR against DCW chief Swati Maliwal in connection with alleged irregularities in recruitment in the women’s panel.

“A case under sections 13(D) of Prevention of Corruption Act, 409 (criminal breach of trust) and 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy) of the IPC has been registered against Maliwal,” said a senior ACB officer.

The ACB had taken up the probe on a complaint by former DCW chief Barkha Shukla Singh, who alleged that several AAP supporters were given plum posts in the women’s panel.

Singh, in her complaint, had listed the names of 85 people who, she claimed, got jobs “without requisite credentials”.
