“When it comes to policy matters which are governed by the Centre, we will seek the Home Ministry’s advice,” a senior police officer said.

He said the Delhi Police is, however, open to the idea of installing CCTV cameras inside police stations, as sought by the government, to deal with complaints of non-registration of FIRs.

“We would also be happy to provide a list of ‘dark spots’, which could be potential places of crime against women, so that they can be illuminated,” the officer said.

In the CM’s letter, Bassi was also asked to send the government a list of all SHOs and inspectors in the city, including their dates of posting in present positions.

The AAP government has been demanding handing over of Delhi Police to it to improve the law and order situation in the city. Currently, police functions are under the direct administrative control of the Union Home Ministry.
