Any move to use the Noida twin murder case as a plot in a teleserial will reflect an "insensitive" attitude towards a minor, Union Minister Renuka Chowdhury said on Tuesday.

Chowdhury, who holds the Women and Child Development Minister portfolio, also said the Noida police should be taken to task for its handling of the case.

"From day one we are saying that top cops should be suspended and the Inspector General of Police summoned for an explanation. And it would be unfortunate if this is not being done," she said here.

Chowdhury was speaking at the launch of a mobile medical van equipped with basic medical facilities meant for disadvantaged women and children.

Nupur Talwar, mother of slain 14-year-old girl Aarushi, on Monday had made an appeal to the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights to bar filmmakers from making any film or teleserial on her daughter's murder.

The minister said that the NCPCR heard the plea of the mother and will give its views after examining all facts.

Aarushi was found murdered with her throat slit on May 16 at her Noida Sector 25 residence. The body of the domestic servant Hemraj was recovered from the terrace the next day.

The CBI has now taken over probe into the case from Noida Police.

In reply to a question about allegations that she was interfering in the state matters, Chowdhury said, "I will continue doing that if proper action has not been taken against people who are on the wrong side."
