Lucknow: An officer at the Lucknow Passport office has been accused of humiliating a couple - Tanvi Seth and Anas Siddiqui, from Noida who has an inter-faith marriage.

Tanvi Seth reportedly was asked to change her name and religion in order to get her passport made.

Meanwhile, the officer has been transferred after intervention from the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj who was narrated the incident by the victim through a series of tweets.

Tanvi Seth approached the local passport office for renewal of her passport where she alleged that the passport officer harassed her during the interview.

She said, "I was told my passport cannot be made because I have married a Muslim and did not change my name. I asked what I should do now. So I was told to change my name in all documents."

Tanvi said that the officer's voice was so loud and humiliating that she was left into tears.
