Leaking of Aadhaar card details dangerous: Mamata

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said leaking out of Aadhaar card details could be "dangerous" because it might lead to the disclosure of confidential information about individuals.

Banerjee told reporters here that Aadhaar details being leaked out was "alarming", and could be dangerous for individuals and society.

"We don't know why such acts are taking place. We already have the PAN card, voter ID card. But I believe what is taking place in the name of the Aadhaar card will be dangerous for any individual and society," she said.

Criticising the Centre, the Trinamool Congress chief said, "Some people act like Muhammad Bin Tughlaq and take sudden decisions such as dividing the state or the move of demonetisation. This information about Aadhaar card details leakage also shows such a mindset."

More than 200 central and state government websites publicly displayed details such as names and addresses of some Aadhaar beneficiaries, the Unique Identification Authority of India said recently.

"Details from head to toe of every individual talk between mother and daughter... husband and wife would be known. I have been a warning (people) about this time and again," Banerjee said.
