70 Indian passports stolen from San Francisco in US

WASHINGTON (TIP): About 70 Indian passports have reportedly been stolen from a private company, to which the Indian Consulate in the US city of San Francisco has outsourced various visa and passport related services.

The serious breach of security is being investigated by the San Francisco police department. Both the Indian Consulate and the local police have informed the state department and the relevant federal authorities so that these passports are not misused, a media report said.

At least 70 Indian passports were stolen from BLS International’s San Francisco Office, in late November last year, an Indian-American publication India West reported. The San Francisco police department began investigating the case on December 2, 2013. According to the investigating officer, a BLS employee told the police that the passports, along with cash and checks, were taken from a locked safe.
