Youth picked up for vote rigging

Kamrup Police have picked up a youth on Saturday acting on the allegations of rigging at a polling booth in North Guwahati where he was deployed as a VDP member.

Identified as Bimal Boro, the youth was picked up from Baihata two days for his alleged rigging of polls at the Bornijora booth on Thursday.

The rigging came to light when a private satellite news channel beamed a story showing the footage where Boro, the VDP member was seen pressing the EVM button on behalf of a section of voters in full view of the presiding and polling officers.
