After police report, this inter-faith couple’s passport may get cancelled

The couple had earlier accused the Lucknow Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) superintendent of invoking religious slur.

More revelations emerged in the infamous passport office controversy involving the inter-faith couple.

This after the Lucknow police submitted an adverse report against the couple.

The couple had earlier accused the Lucknow Passport Seva Kendra (PSK) superintendent of invoking religious slur.

The report triggered speculation that the newly issued passports of Tanvi Seth and her husband Anas Siddiqui, who had taken social media by storm accusing passport official Vikas Mishra of hurling religious slur, could now stand cancelled.

There is also chance of them being fined as much as Rs 5,000 for misleading authorities and creating a ruckus.

After furore in the social media, the intelligence unit of Lucknow police was entrusted with verification procedure involving the couple’s current and permanent residential address.

The report has now been submitted where in it has cited two reasons for the verification failure and therefore the report has become adverse.

It is said that the “Applicants name in passport form is Tanvi Seth while in her marriage certificate Sadia Anas.

Applicant is working in BT Global Business Service Pvt Ltd, Noida. Applicant lives on rent at B604, JM Archit apartment, Section 76, Noida. This rental address is not mentioned in the passport form by application.”

Regional passport officer (RPO) Piyush Verma, however, said his office was examining the report submitted by UP police and would take an appropriate action.

He dismissed reports that Mishra’s transfer to Gorakhpur was being revoked. He also refuted reports that he was summoned by the MEA in Delhi.
