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.
