Passport cannot be denied based on kin’s ultra links:Omar Abdullah

IN19_OMAR_147044fSrinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said he will ensure that no person is denied a passport on the basis of his or her relative being involved in subversive activities.

“I will get to the bottom of this issue because, although this case was highlighted, I must ensure there aren’t others going unnoticed,” Omar wrote on microblogging website Twitter.

“That having been said this case raises the wider question of why the CID rejection, against stated policy, happened in the first place
Am sure if there is nothing in his own record his relative’s history will not prejudice his passport application. Have inquired into the passport issue of Sheikh Ruhail. It is coming up for review today as he had applied for a review of the rejection,” Omar wrote on Twitter.
