28 Aug Indian Congress Says DNA Profiling Will Violate Privacy
The Indian Congress said this week that the new DNA profiling bill being pushed by the government will violate the privacy and autonomy of citizens, with Congressman Abhishek Singhvi saying that surveillance breeds conformity and the BJP-led government only wants an India that is defined by them.
The bill seeks for national and regional DNA data banks to be set up to keep a national database for identification of victims, accused, suspects, under-trials, missing persons and unidentified human remains.
Singhvi added that the bill is an example of Aadhaar misuse and accused the government of using it as a a snooping device.
