A probe has been ordered into the leakage of a document containing details of security arrangements for President Ram Nath Kovind's two-day visit to Kanpur.
The details had surfaced on some WhatsApp groups.
The document with details regarding the security, fleet, deployment of forces at the venues attended by President Kovind and other protocols was distributed to senior officials, but was found in circulation on social media.
