Arvind Kejriwal orders probe into corruption allegations against BS Bassi


Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has ordered ACB to probe the corruption allegations against Delhi Police Commissioner Bhim Sain Bassi.

For his part, Bassi on Friday denied the allegations of corruption and warned those behind spreading this ‘rumour’ of dire consequences.

Speaking to reporters outside the police headquarter, a visibly angry police commissioner said, “CP Delhi chup ke kaam nahi karta. Beimeenao ko beimeenao ke qabristan pe le kar jaaonga. Main danke ke chot par kaam karta hoon. (CP Delhi doesn’t work behind the veil. I will take corrupt to their graves. I work with elan.)”

Bassi is accused of ‘obtaining a residential plot measuring 500 Sq M in 1998 through fraudulently obtaining the membership of Civil Services Officers Welfare Society New Delhi.”

A document from the state government (see attached) has made further damning allegations against the top cop. It said that Bassi ‘dishonestly and fraudulently, to cheat both the societies, did not inform the Lucky Housing Society about his subsequent membership of the Civil Services Officers Welfare Society.’

He’s accusing of acquiring a flat through an “irregular manner” as an alleged “favour by a former bureaucrat” in 1989.

According to the complaint received by Kejriwal’s office, while the original allottee was unaware of the cancellation of his membership and hence lost ownership of the flat in question, Bassi purchased it for Rs. 11,000 which was much lower than the market price of around Rs. 3 lakh.
