Participate in violent protests, face consequences while applying for government job or passport: Bihar Police

Bihar Police, on Thursday, issued an order saying those participating in violent protests and demonstrations will find it difficult to get government jobs or passports. The order also said that they would not be given loans of grants from the government.

The participation will affect nine services which include passport, character certificate, contractual jobs in government, work contracts in government departments, boards and commissions, licences for petrol pump and gas agency, passports, government grant, bank loans, reports The Indian Express.


The directive issued said, “If a person is involved in any criminal act by engaging in any law and order situation, protests, road jams etc. and is charged by the police for this, then specific mention of this will be made in the character verification report by the police. Such people have to be prepared for serious consequences because they will not be able to get a government job or apply for a state-owned liquor store.”

Uttarakhand DGP Ashok Kumar also joined the bandwagon and said, “From now onwards, the police would scrutinise the accused person’s social media behaviour to check if he is habitual of putting such anti-national posts. If it is found, then the police would not clear his police verification, needed while applying for passport or arms license.” The police said that the decision was taken after there was an increase in the number of people posting ‘anti-national’ posts on social media.
