"Police is always accountable towards the system and not to any individual. We are answerable to the government and through it to Parliament," Bassi told reporters after meeting Lt Governor Najeeb Jung here.

The Chief Minister has asked the Delhi Police Commissioner to meet him today to discuss law and order situation in the national capital, in the wake of the gruesome murder of 19-year-old girl in Central Delhi.
    
The victim Meenakshi was allegedly stabbed to death last week by two brothers living in her neighbourhood for protesting their verbal abuse.

Bassi said he would meet the CM and 'exchange ideas to prepare a robust security machinery in the city'. Referring to a complaint against Kejriwal by a constable over the formers alleged use of a derogatory word in describing cops, Bassi said the term was 'unacceptable' but the offence was non-cognizable.
    
On AAP's demand for bringing Delhi Police under the city government, Bassi had said there is no need for any changes in its current administrative structure. Currently, Delhi Police functions directly under administrative control of Home Ministry.
