‘Fortunate’ Delhi government doesn’t control police: Bassi

New Delhi, Jan 4 (IANS) Delhites are “khushnaseeb” (fortunate) that Delhi Police doesn’t come under the Delhi government, Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi said on Monday.

“People of Delhi are fortunate because Delhi Police does not come under Delhi government. If the chief minister were to handle the force, it will have to face political interference in local issues,” Bassi said.

He was addressing the annual press conference of the 80,000-strong Delhi Police.

Bassi said the city police had not faced any political interference as Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh never interfered in police work vis-a-vis local issues.

“Police forces that are under state governments will have to face political interference over local issues. The situation is different for Delhi on this issue,” he said.
