When police commissioner BS Bassi retires from the Delhi Police on Monday after a thirty-nine year long stint with the force, the top cop has a part-time retirement plan.

Bassi has decided to study the laws and cases of sedition in other countries, apart from other assignment that will come his way.

“I will be travelling after my retirement. If I go to any country, I will try to find how they deal with a case of sedition,” Bassi, who was in the eye of the storm over the sedition case against student leader Kanhaiya Kumar, told HT.

“The word sedition may be a thing of the past but every country deals with such problems. Laws are made to ensure that everyone lives in a peaceful environment. I will do a detailed study about the laws in the countries that I get a chance to visit,” he said.

Talking about the sedition case against Kanhaiya, he said the police have enough evidence against him and the other accused. “My officers have collected evidence against the accused persons. The investigation is on and in the process, we will get more evidence. We are confident about the case,” he said.

Bassi, who had joined Delhi Police at the age of 21 years, turned 60 last week. During his nearly three-year tenure as the top cop, Bassi had a face-off with Arvind Kejriwal government on several issues.
