New Delhi: In yet another effort aimed at cleaning the public image of Delhi Police, its chief BS Bassi on Tuesday announced a reward of Rs 25,000 for anyone helping exposing corrupt policemen.
The move came a day after a survey put Delhi Police among the most corrupt departments in Delhi.
As per the reports, a person will have to provide either audio or video recording as evidence to substantiate the charge.
“We are starting a new scheme under which anyone who gives actionable audio or video evidence against any police personnel involved in corrupt practices will be given a reward of Rs 25,000,” Bassi was quoted as saying in interview to India Today TV channel.
“Persons providing actionable evidence against any other civilian involved in corruption will also be eligible for a reward of Rs 10,000. Anyone can now send an audio or video on WhatsApp to 9910641064 and also make a complaint on 1064 helpline,” the top cop said.
Bassi also declined to comment on the survey done by CMS-India in association with Transparency International.
The Aam Aadmi Party had used the survey findings to take pot shots at the police. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal once again made a case for handing over the control of Delhi Police to Delhi government.
However, hitting back at the Delhi Chief Minister for suggesting that Delhi Police was the “most corrupt”, top cop Bassi advised the AAP government to focus on its “own work” and let the police do theirs.
