Former Indian cricket team captain MS Dhoni's personal details were erroneously made public by the agency which helps the Unique Identification Authority of India implement the Aadhaar programme, NDTV reported.

Dhoni's personal details were made public by CSC e-governance services after it tweeted the cricketer's application form along with a photograph of the cricketer having his fingerprints scanned.


The matter was brought to the notice of union law and IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad by Sakshi Dhoni, wife of MS Dhoni.

The minister replied asking if any personal details were divulged.

But Sakshi replied with more information explaining the entire situation to which he said strict action would be taken against the guilty. 

She later thanked the minister for his prompt reply.

The tweet was later removed.

The Aadhar scheme has been shrouded in controversy regarding the safety of personal data.

The government recently made it mandatory for everyone to have an aadhar number for the filing of income tax returns.
