But what were the ‘incendiary’ factors that the Congress Party took umbrage over? Here we list 12 top reasons which the police proforma has sought in security profiling of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi:
1. Dress, including shoes worn by the “suspect”
2. Close associates
3. Deformity or peculiarity
4. Special identification marks
7. Beard or moustache
8. Language preferred
10. Marital status
11. Past activities
The two-page form is filled usually by a sub-inspector.
It must be mentioned here that leaders like Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders like former PM Atal Behari Vajpayee, former Dy PM LK Advani and Union minister Sushma Swaraj have been similarly profiled in the past.
