New Delhi: As the cold war between Delhi Chief Minister and Delhi Police rages on, Commissioner BS Bassi announced Rs 25,000 reward to anyone who provides video or audio evidence of a cop taking bribe. The police commissioner even said, “I would quit if anyone can show that I am involved in corruption.”
“We will analyse the footage sent and check its veracity after which the complainant would be called and awarded. If the complaint is against someone from a government department, the file would be forwarded to the anti-corruption branch,” he added.
He even said that this order is valid with other government servants as well, where the complainant will be given Rs 10,000. The evidence can be sent through the help of anti-corruption helpline 9910641064.
Countering the Chief Minister’s charge that Delhi Police was the “most corrupt”, top cop BS Bassi today said that the survey cited by Arvind Kejriwal while making such remarks was actually “flattering” for the force and offered to help him understand its findings.
Bassi said he has gone through the 34-page survey, which was done by Centre for Media Studies (CMS), and claimed that its findings had “doubled” his force’s enthusiasm.
“The survey reveals that, in 2012, 80 per cent of the people in Delhi said they have experienced corruption in dealing with police officials; that rate has dropped to 34 per cent in 2015.
“Similarly, the perception that police officials are corrupt has dropped from 56 per cent in 2012 to 49 per cent in 2015,” Bassi said on the sidelines of the the Police Commemoration Day Parade here today.
Taking a dig at the chief minister, he said, “After reading the survey thoroughly, I can go for a one-on-one debate with anybody regarding its results. If the honourable CM allows, I can help him understand those findings.”
Bassi added that “the findings of the survey are flattering” for Delhi Police and that “it has doubled the force’s enthusiasm”.
