We all know that photos in government IDs can go horrifically wrong. However, rarely it can turn you into other species. This has happened with a man from West Bengal. Sunil Karmakar, a resident of Ramnagar village in Murshidabad is the one we are talking about. Sunil has been issued a voter ID card with a dog’s picture on it.
The incident highlights the height of irresponsibility with which the department has worked. The Block Development Officer (BDO) has apologized for the incident and said a revised Voter ID would be issued soon.
“Yesterday I was called at Dulal Smriti School and this voter ID card was given to me. I saw the photo. The officer there signed and gave it to me but he didn’t see the photo. This is playing with my dignity. I will go to the BDO office and request that this should not happen again”, said Sunil.
BDO Rajarshi Chakraborty said that this might have happened as someone might have done it while filling online application. As per the latest inputs, the BDO said that the photo has already been corrected and the man would get the final ID card with the correct photo.
