New Delhi: Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi today made a U-turn from his earlier stand of not opposing JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar's bail plea in the High Court, saying it was due to "change in circumstances".

Bassi had earlier asserted that the police will not oppose Kanhaiya's bail, maintaining that a young man like him should be given another chance. However, the police chief today justified his backtracking saying, "The circumstances when I had said so, those have totally changed."

Bassi further said, Kanhaiya showed repentance on his part when he issued an appeal on the day he was produced before a court but later denied having issued any such appeal and made certain allegations which were "false".

"We have reasonable apprehension that if he (Kanhaiya) comes out on bail, he is bound to impact the investigation and influence witnesses. He is also likely to indulge in activities that are violative of penal laws.

"That is why we have opposed grant of bail to Kanhaiya and shall oppose it further too," Bassi added.
