New Delhi: Denying the “false” allegations of corruption in a property deal levelled against him by the Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party government, police commissioner Bhim Sain Bassi on Friday vowed to take the “corrupt to their graveyard”, even as the AAP regime reportedly contemplated action against the top cop in this regard.

The AAP government is reportedly considering filing charges against Bassi over alleged “impropriety involving a cooperative society flat in West Delhi’s Rohini where a member of the society was allegedly illegally expelled in 1990 to allocate a flat to the police commissioner.”


In another charge, Bassi allegedly did not disclose that he already owned another flat while availing a plot under a civil services welfare society making the deal illegal. Later, he allegedly indulged in another impropriety in 1998 when he sold off the apartment to his younger brother, Ravi Bassi, for Rs 11 lakh which is less than prevailing market rate so as to save on stamp duty.

A document from the state government copy of which is with NewsGram shows that Bassi ‘to cover up his wrongdoings’ sold that flat to his brother at significantly lower than the market price.



It adds, “The consideration shown in the conveyance deed was dishonestly shown much lower than the actual market price…to cheat the government to pay less stamp duty and registration fee.”

A visibly upset and angry police commissioner said on Friday that a police officer cannot make dubious deals.

“CP Delhi does not work behind the veil. I have not even taken a bribe of 25 paise. I have not received any complaint. The corrupt are calling me corrupt. I will take the corrupt to their graveyard,” Bassi vowed.

AAP leader Ashutosh slammed Bassi for his threatening remarks: “Even if there are charges, does it merit such language? The police commissioner issued an open threat to kill.”

It is alleged that Bassi “obtained a residential plot measuring 500 Sq M in 1998 through fraudulently obtaining the membership of Civil Services Officers Welfare Society New Delhi.”

The state government document alleges 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 (CSOWS).”

A possible transaction of black money in the sale of the flat 39 in Lucky Housing Society in also under the scanner of Delhi government.

It is further alleged that while acquiring the possession of flat 39, Bassi had not paid what known as equalisation charge, at 24% per annum. The police commissioner is accused of abusing his influence as the DCP, North Delhi, his designation at the time of purchasing this flat.

Music is the universal language that is spoken by all.

When it comes to our day-to-day life, there are several things which help us enhance our day with every step. One such thing is music. It enhances, motivates and boosts certain aspects of our personality in ways that may not come into notice. There have been several researches on how music affects human brain. Studies show it helps us in recovery and healing, and also, encouraging us to be better if exposed to the right kind and fit.

From kids to elderly, music as a commodity, can be consumed by all. It is the universal language that is spoken by each and every being, from animals to humans to plants, each respond to it in their own ways. Suffice to say, we are united by music and the effect it has over us. Plants, for example, grow better when exposed to good music. Many songs are being composed specifically to enhance and boost their growth. Same is the case for humans. For humans, the right kind of music can boost good health, physically as well as mentally. You might have noticed how in gyms, upbeat music is played. That is to channel energy into everyone present. It adds to the workout.

Awareness is the key to heal.

As more and more people are acknowledging the importance of their mental well-being, the wave of awareness the acknowledgment has brought is unprecedented. It may not have paved a clear path towards complete healing but it certainly has shown the way. The awareness is the key to heal. Healing begins only after the problem is identified. Similar to physical illness, the identification of the problem area is the first step. Even in case of a minor wound, when we go to the hospital the nurse first locates the wound. They, then, ask how we got hurt and identify the nature of the wound. Only then, they clean, put ointment and wrap it up if it needs wrapping and protection from air and dust. Sometimes, that protection is not needed. The wound heals out in the open. Same goes when it comes to healing of a mental trauma or illness. Sometimes, we confine in professionals or our loved ones, in order to let it out and process it openly. Sometimes, the trauma reduces with time. In any way, being aware and vigilant is the way to go.

Being knowledgeable about life in general, opens many channels for you. Being knowledgeable about yourself, opens gates inside you that lead to spiritual and general awareness about the concept of self. And the inner awareness is not necessarily internal, it can be seen from the outside as well. When we have positive energy from within it radiates physically as well. Have you encountered someone who’s spiritually awakened and aware? Do they stand out in the crowd? There are prominent examples of people who have made their mark in history, there is Swami Vivekanada, his awakening has revolutionised generations, one live example we can witness is The Dalai Lama.
