The Rouse Avenue Court on Thursday framed charges against Delhi commission for Women Chairperson Swati Maliwal along with members Promila Gupta, Sarika Choudhary and Farheen Malik in connection with irregularities in appointments in the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW).
The court of Special Judge Dig Vinay Singh said that there is prima facie sufficient material in this case to frame charges against the four. In this case, all four have demanded a trial, claiming themselves to be innocent.
According to the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB), on 11 August 2016, they received a complaint from former MLA Barkha Shukla Singh. In it, it was alleged that people associated with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) were appointed in the Delhi Commission for Women, bypassing the rules.
