Who is the ball"less" guy?
If the police represents the home ministry, then the minister is responsible. He cannot say, "Ask the police.". There is no room for this kind of blame game. Where is the ethics that a leader should portray? Oh, I forgotten...it is a politician I'm talking about. Politicians can only be politically correct. Well, not all politicians..just most of them.
If he has the guts to admit his ministry's faults in detaining a 6 year old girl for "being a threat to national security" then he should resign. If he should deny and wash his hands clean, he should resign too. The officers who detained the girl should resign too. And to top it up, they should all apologise publicly.
