New Delhi: After revealing that a high-profile minister was behind a prostitution racket at GB road in New Delhi’s red light area, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal said that she will soon be revealing the name of the minister behind the racket.
Maliwal, who has been accused of irregular recruitments by the Anti-Corruption Branch, said that she had been conducting raids at different places in GB road for the last few days.
“I had been trying to understand how this prostitution business worth thousands of crores of rupees is being run openly at a distance of barely three km from parliament. During our investigations, we have got strong indications that this business is being run under the protection of a central minister and a senior politician from Delhi of a prominent national party,” she said.
Maliwal, who is an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member, said that she was being threatened by outside parties to not pursue the case.
“While our investigation was going on and we had just got clues on the involvement of some prominent persons, suddenly a ‘false’ FIR was filed against me. And now I have been getting messages that these leaders will get me arrested and will have me removed from the DCW through the Lieutenant Governor’s intervention,” said Maliwal.
