The paramilitary force, tasked to secure India's frontier with China apart from undertaking a variety of duties in the internal security and anti-Naxal operations domain, recently issued a dozen-point official order in this regard.
    
"Official photographs and documents should not be uploaded on social media websites, wikis and forums like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ among others.

"Personnel should also refrain from making comments on political related matters/issues," the latest instructions, accessed by a news agency, said.
    
Officials said the instructions were issued after being cleared by the top brass of the force keeping in mind the potential hazards of a "data spill" or "social engineering" threats in the age of smart phones and multi-data connectivity. The troops were also asked to keep away from commenting on controversial and distasteful content.
