Goa Congress blames Bassi for JNU mess

Panaji, Feb 23 (IANS) The Congress in Goa on Tuesday accused Delhi Police chief B.S. Bassi of mishandling the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student troubles.

Goa Congress spokesperson Sunil Kawthankar said the series of incidents linked to the JNU protests could have stemmed from the lack of leadership by Bassi, who also served in Goa from 2009 to 2011.

“Bassi was a slack police officer, even when he was the Goa DGP,” the Congress leader said in a statement.

“He had gone on record to say that the drug problem in Goa was insignificant though some senior officials of his department were arrested for having a nexus with drug mafia and almost 24 kg of drugs were missing from police custody,” he said.
