Satish Kumar Mathur, DIG, Saharanpur Range, was caught on camera expressing that if his own sister ever eloped he would kill her or commit suicide.
Mathur gave this shocking remark to a complainant, whose daughter had allegedly run away. DIG Saharanpur Range was on a routine inspection of police stations when he offered this suggestion.
Mathur said that this is a matter of great shame and if anybody's sister or daughter flees away, then he should commit suicide by getting drowned in water. If she was his sister, then he would have shot her dead or would kill himself.
Meanwhile, the National Commission for Women (NCW) has reacted sharply on the DIG's comments over honour killing. The NCW has sought DIG's suspension following his controversial remarks.
