An incident of fraudulent voting has been found out at a voting centre in Chavakacheri electorate, the Police said. Much tension prevailed at the voting centre for some time. The husband of Chavakachcheri TC, Sivamankai Ramanathan had gone to vote at Chavakacheri Hindu Primary school.
The officers at the voting station had informed him that his vote had been casted already. However, an “on request vote” was given to him for voting. His name had been cut in the register of both the officer at the centre and the books of Party agents at the centre. No one objected granting of “on request vote” to Mr.Ramanthan while a monitor was also present at the centre at that time.
It is notable that, “on request vote” will not be counted in the counting of votes casted.
Tension prevailed for some time at the centre.
