New Delhi, Jan 16 IANS | 6 months ago

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Thursday said Delhi Police are "highly compromised" and if any crime is prevented in the national capital it is not because of the police force but rather god's grace.


"The security of the people has been left to god and whatever little crime incidents are not happening is not because of Delhi Police but despite them," Kejriwal said following the recent incidents of grave crimes against women, including the rape Tuesday of a 51-year-old Danish tourist by a gang of vagabonds.

On Kejriwal's comment, Delhi Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi said: "I haven't seen the news as I was busy. There is no war between Kejriwal and me."

Bassi also assured that the city is safe in the hands of the Delhi Police.

Earlier Wednesday, Kejriwal said he would meet Bassi along with Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung to analyse the cause of so many rapes in the capital.
