A team from Delhi’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) is conducting a raid at Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) office based on a complaint related to recruitment. The complaint was filed by ex-DCW chief Barkha Shukla Singh. In her complaint, Barkha Singh had said that the women panel’s incumbent president Swati Maliwal, practised “nepotism and favouritism” in appointments. Speaking to reporters, Barkha Singh said that AAP supporters were given plum jobs, ignoring the basic norms for recruitment. In her complaint the ex-DCW chief named 85 people “who got jobs without requisite credentials and are drawing lakhs of rupees from the Delhi government exchequer”.

Speaking to news agency PTI, Maliwal rubbished the allegations, saying the current staff is needed in her office considering the number of cases the women’s panel handles. “During her tenure of nine years in DCW, Barkha Shukla Singh handled only one case. During this period, the commission made no recommendation to the government and conducted only six visits despite having a staff of about 50 officers,” she added.
