New Delhi, May 29 (PTI) Union Minister Renuka Chowdhary tonight demanded suspension of a senior Uttar Pradesh police official for his reported remarks insinuating that murdered Noida school girl Aarushi Talwar was "characterless".
"I demand suspension of the Inspector General of Uttar Pradesh police (Gurdarshan Singh)," Chowdhary, Women and Child Development Minister, told PTI.
She said her ministry was examining all legal options for filing a defamation case against the police officer.
"It is an absurd, irresponsible and unfortunate statement about a teenager," the minister said referring to the remarks made by the IGP (Meerut zone) last week.
