issue had been picked up by the national media in prominence

As the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was trolled for action against passport officer Vikas Kumar, the inter-faith couple who began the whole thing in the first place may now be in trouble.

The couple claimed to have been allegedly harassed while renewing passport office last week.

The issue had been picked up by the national media in prominence.

The Lucknow police have said they have not been staying at the address they mentioned in the forms for at least a year.

The lapse came about that while Tanvi Seth and Anas Siddiqui have been living and working in Noida, they chose to file the application in Lucknow.

Police sources said it is possible that they might be asked to file more documents, or even an application at the passport office in Noida.

The local passport officials were not available for comment.

The couple, who needed to renew one passport and sought a new one, alleged last week that they were harassed and humiliated during their interview by the passport officer assigned their case.

After the ministry officials intervened the couple got their passport and the officer concerned was shunted out.
