New Delhi: Days after allegations of corruption were levelled against Delhi police commissioner BS Bassi in a property deal, the AAP government on Tuesday directed Vigilance department to file an FIR against the top cop.

According to reports, the Arvind Kejriwal government further instructed the Registrar of Cooperative Society to demolish the illegal construction.

Bassi had denied the “false” allegations of corruption in a property deal levelled against him by the Delhi government, vowing to take the “corrupt to their graveyard”.

The AAP government was 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.

Delhi murder case will never become Dadri or Kathua, Read here WHY?

By Salil Gewali

The incident that had happened in the capital town on last Sunday was dangerously shocking.  A small businessman – Mr. Druv Raj Tyagi, a resident of Moti Nagar, West Delhi, was stabbed brutally who died the very next day. The reason behind this gruesome attack was that the business man’s daughter was often indecently taunted and eve-teased by a group of boys from other community in the locality. This had become a cause of serious concerns for the family members. On that fateful night, the father was returning from a clinic with his daughter who was quite sick. When a gang of youths passed indecent remarks upon the daughter, the father could not tolerate it, he felt very humiliated. He immediately determined himself to approach the parents of one of the main boys.

The father of the boy, Mr. Jahangir Khan, instead of apologizing and pacifying Mr. Tyagi and taking his son to task started hurling the abuses at him. Very soon many other Jahangir’s relatives joined him and started thrashing the man. In the meantime, Jahangir took out a knife and stabbed multiple times in his abdomen. Hearing the loud cries of the father, the son – Mr. Anmol Tyagi immediately rushed to the spot. But Jahangir Khan again aggressively attacked the boy with the same knife. Due to deep injuries in Tyagi’s liver, kidney, and intestines, he died on Monday while the son is still battling for the life.

Such cases of brutal attacks or sexual overtures on the particular community are increasingly happening across the country. No matter how heinous the crimes, no matter how brutal the sexual torture, they never become “Kathua and Dadri”, nor do any leaders visit the scene of the crime to console the aggrieved victims of the majority community. Nor any noted NGOs, nor elite groups come out in protest and condemn the incidents. Even the bloodiest incidents of Ankit Saxena, Pankaj Narang, Sunita, Riya Gautam and so on could not evoke any sympathy of our celebrities and political leaders, nor of‘AWARD-WAPSI’ gang. Needless to say, hardly any candle marches are held and placards displayed in condemnation against the criminals if the victims are from the majority community. Are the pains and agonies of the majority less hurtful and the perpetrators less sinful?  Is this not disgustingly inhumane trend?

Sexual harrassment
Such cases of brutal attacks or sexual overtures on the particular community are increasingly happening across the country.

Please note, not just the only women are unsafe in India. The time is not far off when the whole major population of the country will be screaming for the safety and security in their own land. How did Kashmir happen, how our people were tortured and deported, and how did we react? What with our secularist brothers who have learned all along to hate the nation itself! Yes, they have moved a step further by coining the unheard term — Hindu terror.

We are very WEAK, we are very timid — we have no more “kshatriya blood running in our veins”  to defend ourselves and to protect our own land of birth. Kerala, West Bengal and some pockets of Assam are already up in arms against us.

Alas, our inaction, our meek silence and our deceptive “chant of secularism” has almost put the major populace under the ominous threat.
