Rules will be followed in Durga Shakti`s case: PM
New Delhi: Rules will "be followed" in the case of suspended IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Monday.
"There are rules laid down. They will be followed. We are in touch with the state government to get details of the case," the Prime Minister said here in response to a question from a reporter on the government`s stand on Durga Shakti`s case.
The suspension of Nagpal, a 28-year-old 2009-batch officer of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) by the Uttar Pradesh government July 29, has led to a public outcry.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi has asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to ensure fair treatment for Nagpal and stressed need for safeguards to protect officials "working to uphold rule of law".
