Keep your rage in check. Hitting police personnel may cost you your passport, driving licence, and in extreme cases, even your job.

A circular issued by police commissioner Satyapal Singh on Friday lays down stringent measures to be taken against those who attack men and women in uniform.

Police will now recommend cancellation of passports of offenders, and will oppose any attempts at renewal. Lookout notices will be put up at ports and airports to ensure such people do not travel out of the country without permission from the court.

The RTO will be asked to cancel driving licences of offenders. Police will also send an adverse report to such persons' employers.

Offenders will also be booked under the Maharashtra Prevention of Dangerous Activities Act (MPDA). Arms licence, if any, will be revoked.

To ensure offenders don't slip through jurisdictional loopholes, a consolidated list will be maintained at all police stations.
