In a tweet, Maliwal wrote: “Late last night, I was inspecting the situation of women’s security in Delhi. A car driver molested me in an inebriated condition and when I caught hold of him, he locked my hand in the car window and dragged me. Thankfully, I was able to escape. If the chairperson of the women’s commission is not safe in Delhi, then one can only imagine the situation for other women.”
