Lucknow: After controversially suspending her, Akhilesh Yadav`s Samajwadi Party has now threatened to `expose` which "family she (Durga Shakti Nagpal) belongs to".
On Tuesday, Uttar Pradesh Minister for Health and Family Welfare Ahmad Hasan told reporters that he has received "information" about Durga`s family.
"Which family does Nagpal belong to? You will come to know when we will expose it... then you will regret. Whom are you encouraging? She has destroyed the credibility of IAS cadre," the minister said.
Hasan went on to call the suspended IAS officer a liar.
The minister made these comments in the presence of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav at the latter`s residence at an event held to unveil animal husbandry and dairy development projects.
The minister said that by ordering the razing of an under construction boundary wall of a mosque in a Noida village, Nagpal had threatened communal harmony.
The Uttar Pradesh government suspended Nagpal, a sub-divisional magistrate in Noida, after charging her with ordering the demolition of a mosque wall. She denied the charge.
It is widely believed that Samajwadi Party leaders were upset that she had cracked down on a mafia extracting sand illegally from rivers beds in the region.
