Bassi meets LG, briefs about law and order situation in Delhi

New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi met Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung here today to discuss the law and order situation in the national capital.

Bassi would also be meeting Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal later today in the wake of the gruesome murder of a 19-year-old girl at Anand Parbat.

Kejriwal had yesterday while expressing shock over the incident said that the law and order situation in the national capital has deteriorated drastically in the recent past.

“Delhi Police is under the Centre. The Prime Minister should either act or transfer Delhi Police’s command to the Delhi Government,” he said.

Kejriwal has been demanding that the charge of the Delhi Police be handed over to the Aam Aadmi Party Government.

“I appeal with folded hands to PM Modi either take out 1 hour for law and order or give Delhi Police to us,” the AAP’s Twitter handle had earlier quoted Kejriwal as saying.(ANI)
