MALAPPURAM: Dozens of youngsters facing criminal charges for tampering with their passports opened their bundle of woes in front of Union Minister of State for External Affairs E Ahamed. Assuring them all help within the legal limits, Ahamed rang up Chief Passport Officer Muktesh Pardeshi in New Delhi and asked him to come to Malappuram to hear the cases. Pardeshi is likely to visit Malappuram on November 23 or 24, said Ahamed. The minister listened to the complaints of the victims who had allegedly been “harassed and tormented” by the police. The Muslim Youth League, which had organised a ‘collective of the passport victims of police harassment’ a few weeks ago, provided the platform for the victims to interact with the minister.
