DCW chief Swati Maliwal was on Monday granted bail by a special court in Delhi after she appears in case of alleged irregularities in recruitment in women’s panel.

Reacting to the development, Maliwal tweeted, “Truth can be harrassed but never defeated. I’ve never done anything wrong. My work is worship for me. I have full faith in judiciary. Truth always prevails.”

During the hearing, the court asked the investigating officer and prosecutor Atul Shrivastava whether the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) was further probing the matter as per its direction.

To this, the IO replied in the affirmative and said it would take some time to conclude the investigation. Maliwal also told the court that she has received the copy of charge sheet and other documents.

Special judge Hemani Malhotra had summoned Maliwal in January as an accused by a special court in the case.

Judge Malhotra had taken cognisance of the charge sheet filed against Maliwal by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) in the case.

The court had summoned her for the alleged offences under section 13 (criminal misconduct by public servant) of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

It, however, had said the investigating officer (IO) has not probed as to who were the associates of Maliwal allegedly involved in the offence.

It had directed the IO to further investigate the matter regarding the role of other accused.
