Two gendames approached a group of women and requested they put on their bikini tops, according to a police statement published Tuesday on Facebook. News of the police action spread and drew a response from the interior minister, Gerald Darmanin, who tweeted that it was "unfounded" that police regulate what people wear on the beach.

During our recent vacations in Europe in the last 3 - 4 years, we observed many Indian women topless in public beaches. Last year on our holiday to Thailand, in Pattaya we saw Indian ladies topless in private hotels. I want to know if the trend is only for foreign locations or has anyone seen Indian ladies topless in beaches in Goa or in hotels swimming pool. I have been to Goa many times but the last I visited Goa was about 8 years back. As usual we saw many European ladies topless but never saw a single Indian lady.
