Twist in Lucknow passport case, Police may seize Tanvi Seth's passport; here's why
In what came as a twist in the controversy that was sparked when a Hindu-Muslim couple was allegedly harassed at Lucknow passport office, it was revealed in the investigation carried out by the Lucknow police that Tanvi had provided wrong information while filing documents for her passport.
As per the norms, a person should apply for the passport with the address he/she is living at for past 6 months. However, only an army person, a person working in Central Police Force and students are exempted under the guidelines. Accordingly, Tanvi should have had applied in Ghaziabad post office and not Lucknow passport office.
Meanwhile, Tanvi's name that she provided for the passport has also come under the scanner. Before getting married to Anas, Tanvi had changed her religion but claimed that she had never changed her name. However, according to report, the name that is mentioned on her Nikahnama is "Shadia Anas".
The incident came to limelight when the inter-faith couple had alleged that they were harassed at passport office by the official named Vikas Mishra who allegedly asked the husband to change his religion and take 'pheras'. Later officials apologised and Tanvi was given the passport. However, Mishra responded to the allegations and said what he did was as per the rules and regulations. He further said that he had asked Tanvi Seth to get the name "Shadia Anas" endorsed because it was mentioned on her Nikahnama.
