New Delhi: Hours after Information and Technology minister Ravi Shankar Prasad promised to take action for leaking Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Aadhaar information, the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on Wednesday blacklisted the centre which handled former India captain's registration.
“UIDAI blacklists centre that leaked Aadhaar receipt of cricketer MS Dhoni for 10 years,” PTI reported quoting UIDAI CEO Ajay Bhushan Pandey today.
Yesterday, a fuming Sakshi Singh Rawat asked Ravi Shankar Prasad to act after her husband' Aadhaar information was leaked on social media site Twitter.
The fiasco over former India captain's personal information started with a seemingly innocuous looking tweet by @CSCeGOV_ yesterday. In the Twitter post, Dhoni was seen authenticating fingerprints for Aadhaar registration.


But, the post came with another photo, a screenshot, showing Dhoni's Aadhaar registration details.
The revelation, as expected, left Sakshi fuming. In a Twitter post, which also tagged to IT minister, she asked "is there any privacy left ?"

@rsprasad @CSCegov_ is there any privacy left ??? Information of adhaar card including application is made public property!

For his part, Prasad first tried to acertain what's really going on by asking "Does this Tweet divulge any personal information?"
To it Sakshi responded, "Sir personal information filled in form is leaked".
The minister was prompt to reply. He agreed that "sharing personal information is illegal," and promised action to be taken.
