Bassi has been in the spotlight lately for his comments on the court violence following the row after protests in JNU. He continues to be in the thick of controversy as Firstpost reporter Tarique Anwar, was beaten up outside Patiala House on Wednesday while the police looked on.

Bassi on Wednesday had said that there was adequate information against JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar who was arrested on sedition charges, said a report in The Times of India.

A Firstpost report on Tuesday highlighted some of the things Bassi said in relation to Kanhaiya's arrest. The Delhi police chief was quoted as saying, "Excesses were committed from both sides, but they have been extremely minor in nature,"

Speaking to mediapersons on Tuesday, Bassi said that it was a 'surcharged environment,' and that allegations and counter-allegations have been made, ANI reported.
