    However, before they could submit the letters, they were detained by the Delhi Police. Swati claimed that this happened despite informing the police about their campaign well before.

    The national capital saw a steep increase in sexual violence on children and also top the lists by NCRB for the most number of crimes against women.

    Swati Maliwal has launched a Satyagraha against sexual violence and said that she will continue with her Satyagraha until action is taken.
