Apart from this, the DCW has requested Delhi Police to provide them all the information within 48 hours after receiving this letter with and asked for proper action.
In another tweet, Maliwal advocated capital punishment for the culprits in such cases. “There is no fear in the mind of criminal people. Unless such people are awarded capital punishment, nothing will change,” said Maliwal. She further added: “Last year
Meenakshi was stabbed to death in full public glare. Now one more girl was stabbed 22 times and killed in full public view. This shows hollowness of our society and system. Shameful”.
On Wednesday, Maliwal also expressed her anguish against the Anti Corruption Branch (ACB) for including the name of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the FIR against DCW.
In a series of tweets she defended Kejriwal, DCW and herself. “It’s too much. Arvind ji has been named in the FIR against DCW. What is it, if not a political conspiracy? What Arvind has to do with DCW?,” she asked. She further added that she read the entire FIR and there is nothing against Kejriwal.
