Anita Punj, Director PPA, Phillaur, has been directed to conduct a preliminary enquiry into the allegation and submit the report within a week, said the police spokesperson.
The girl from Ludhiana had made the allegation against Daljit Singh, DSP, Ferozepur, to ADCP 3 Ludhiana. Besides Daljit's suspension pending the inquiry, the Ludhiana Commissioner of Police recommended that the matter be probed by a senior woman IPS officer.
The Chief Minister had earlier in the day announced that the allegations would be probed and if the DSP was found guilty, stern action would be taken against him under the law.
