When NewsMobile Fact Checked this claim, we found out that it was false.
We started with checking the website of ‘Crime Prevention Council of India’
We found a notice where they have clarified that the Crime Prevention Council of India is a non-governmental organization. They also said that the viral letter has not been issued by the organisation.

Also, while EC has issued guidelines for candidates for the use of social media this is not part of the guidelines.
This shows that the letter is Fake and should not be shared further.
