Under sharp attack from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the wake of the gangrape of a Danish woman in the city, Delhi Police chief B S Bassi on Thursday said the force is “competent enough” to ensure the safety of the people of the city.
Replying to a question from mediapersons about Kejriwal saying that the city is not in safe hands, Bassi said “I would like to assure the people of the city that Delhi Police is competent enough to ensure the safety and security of its citizen. Delhi police is taking every possible step to keep you safe.
The Chief Minister had earlier hit out at Delhi Police calling it “highly compromised” and accusing it of non-cooperation in two cases where government ministers had sought action. He had also demanded immediate suspension of two SHOs and two ACPs involved.
“Delhi police is highly compromised. If accountability of Delhi Police is not fixed, than crime and rape incidents will not go down”, said Kejriwal.
Facing a volley of questions by reporters about the accusations, the Delhi Police Commissioner merely said he was not aware of the developments as he was “too busy” and could not get time to watch television.

Two Delhi ministers Somnath Bharti and Rakhi Birla Bharti said they had sought police assistance in two separate cases in which they alleged that the concerned officials did not cooperate with them.
Bharti alleged Malviya Nagar police did not cooperate in conducting a surprise raid on Nigerian nationals involved in
drug and sex racket at Khirki village while Birla accused Sagarpur police of shielding the family who had allegedly burnt their daughter-in-law over dowry.
Replying to a question whether the concerned police officials would be suspended, Bassi said “I will seek information about what you are saying and appropriate action will be taken after that.”
Asked whether the Delhi Police has made any complaint to the Lieutenant Governor saying that the ministers are not following procedures, the Commissioner said that they have not made any complaint.
He also said there is no conflict or war of words between Delhi Police and the Chief Minister.
