Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Swati Maliwal on Thursday alleged she was molested by a drunk man while she was on an inspection at night, and dragged by his car for 10-15 metres outside AIIMS here with her hand stuck in the vehicle’s window.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal targeted Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena over the issue while the National Commission for Women sought a report from police.

A 47-year-old man living in south Delhi’s Sangam Vihar has been arrested following the incident which took place in the early hours of the day.

The DCW chief said she inspecting the state of women security in Delhi along with her team, in the wake of the Kanjhawla hit-and-drag incident in which a 20-year-old woman was dragged to death while trapped under a car in the national capital. Maliwal’s team that was with her during the inspection was stationed at some distance. “Last night, I was inspecting the situation of women safety in Delhi. A car driver, in an inebriated condition, harassed me and when I caught hold of him, he rolled up the windowpane on my hand and dragged me along. God saved my life. If the chairperson of the women’s commission is not safe in Delhi, one can then imagine the situation,” she tweeted about the incident in Hindi. Later, the DCW issued a statement saying Maliwal was standing at a busstop on the Ring Road opposite AIIMS when the car approached her.
