Under fire Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi  has said that he would tell the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) that city’s police force is committed on the issue of women safety.
In a veiled attack on the DCW, which has summoned him to explain the delay in handing over data related to crime against women, Bassi advised the Swati Maliwal-led body to operate within its jurisdiction.

“The communication between the two government bodies should be dignified. Delhi Police is committed towards safety of women, Delhi Police is taking every necessary step to ensure safety of women. Nobody should doubt this. Every government body should operate within their limits,” he told reporters here.

Maliwal had  said that in case the Delhi Police fails to submit the data as sought by the DCW then the government body would exercise its powers before a civil court. The embattled Bassi is due to appear before the DCW  for producing the required records and explaining the ?unreasonable? delay in the sharing of data.

The DCW has informed the Delhi Police that it is conducting a detailed study on women?s safety in the national capital for which it needs the information to make appropriate recommendations to the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP Government.

The AAP government and the Delhi Police top cop B S Bassi had been at loggerheads over hosts of issues in the national capital and with the AAP even demanding  that the Delhi Police be handed over to them from the control of the central government.
