"You want that the commissioner of police should stand here in the court with litigants. I can pass that order," Justice G P Mittal said.

He pulled up police for not filing an affidavit with their reply on a petition filed by a lawyer seeking Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into constable Subhash Tomar's death while controlling anti-rape protests near India Gate in December 2012.

"This is not acceptable. Perhaps I have to take some drastic steps," the judge said.
