I have a situation here while trying to renew my passport.
I had a passport issued from my home town Chandigarh in 2010.That expired in 2020.
In the interim I got embroiled in certain criminal matters in 2014 and 2017 which were basically civil disputes and I am one of the accused (not prime accused).
Now all this criminal matters have my address of Chandigarh and I have been living in Mumbai since 2015.
Any summons or warrants received are at my Chandigarh address till date.
All my documents like adhar ,voter id are of my mumbai address (current address).
While filling the passport the form is asking
Are any proceedings in respect of an offence alleged to have been committed by you pending before a criminal court in India?
I do not wish to share these details as I feel the local police here will start harassing me.
If I do not declare these details what is the worst that can happen.
Also if I declare what will happen.
All my documents are authentic otherwise
