Delhi government on Tuesday directed Vigilance department to file an FIR against the city’s top cop BS Bassi for his involvement in alleged irregularities while purchasing a house and illegal construction.
The Arvind Kejriwal government further instructed the Registrar of Cooperative Society to demolish the illegal construction.
On 4 November the Delhi CM had ordered its anti-graft wing, the ACB, to probe the corruption allegations against Bassi.
For his part, Bassi has 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 had 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.”
