Anti-national posts on social media can lead to passport non-approval in Uttarakhand

Uttarakhand police will now keep track of social media behaviour pattern of those frequently posting 'anti-national' and 'anti-social' posts, said Ashok Kumar, police chief of Uttarakhand on the concluding day of State police officers' conference in Dehradun.

The state police will keep track of such people and will mention this while verifying their documents for passport and arms license. This will make it almost impossible to get an arms license or passport for such people. 

"We will scrutinise social media accounts to determine if such posts are coming up frequently. The police would mention this in that person's police verification and may not clear the application for passport or arms license," added the DGP.
