New Delhi, Feb 24 (TIWN): Former Delhi Police Commissioner Bhim Sain Bassi is being considered for the post of Lt Governor of Puducherry but the government is "bit wary", sources said.

The post fell vacant after incumbent, former top cop Kiran Bedi was suddenly removed on February 16 this year. Bassi’s five year tenure at the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) will end on February 28.  Before joining as a UPSC member, Bassi, a 1977 batch IPS officer of the Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territories (AGMUT) cadre, headed the Delhi Police from August 2013 to February 2016 and had a controversial tenure with frequent run-ins with the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government.
