Delhi’s lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung today summoned Delhi police joint commissioner S K Gautam and sought a report over the police action against students during a protest outside RSS office in central Delhi's Jhandewalan area that has sparked widespread outrage.

Meanwhile, the Delhi commission for women has summoned police commissioner BS Bassi to appear before it for allegedly not sharing data regarding crime against women in the national capital.

The top cop has been asked to appear before DCW on February 8 and also explain the “unreasonable” causes of delay in providing the information.

“The commission takes strong note of the fact that despite sending various letters and notices and passage of several months, you have unjustifiably failed to provide crucial information sought by DCW which is imperative for us on the issue of women safety,” DCW chief Swati Maliwal said in the summon issued to Bassi.

Maliwal noted that she had raised the issue of non-receipt of data during a meeting on women safety convened by the LG in November last year and the meeting of the Special Task Force (STF) on women safety in December last.

“During the meetings the commission had raised the issue of non-receipt of data and you had assured that the information sought by us will be immediately provided, however, the same has not been done,” the summon said.

The Delhi commission for women has asked police commissioner Bassi to appear before it next Monday and explain what it has called his "unjustifiable" failure to provide information on crimes against women, which the commission had repeatedly asked for in the past.

The DCW has used its judicial powers to issue a summons to the police commissioner. If Bassi fails to appear before the commission, it can attach his property or issue a warrant of arrest, sources told NDTV. The commission has all the powers of a civil court. He has been asked to provide all the data earlier asked for by the commission and "explain the unreasonable cause of delay" in providing the information. Bassi said he had not received the summons yet. "If there is a summons, we will act accordingly," he said.

Bassi allegedly did not share the data the DCW had asked for on crimes against women in the national capital.
