Delhi’s Chief Electoral Officer Ranbir Singh had cautioned people about such calls claiming deletion of their names from electoral rolls.
His statement comes a day after a BJP delegation met the Chief Election Commissioner and alleged that the Aam Aadmi Party has been making such phone calls.
The poll official had made it clear that no one but the electoral registration officer can add or remove names from electoral rolls. Now, the CEO has asked the Delhi Police Commissioner to investigate the matter to ascertain the correct position.
“…Various written complaints received in this regard are being enclosed herewith. Prima facie, it appears that the matter needs to be thoroughly investigated in order that the factual correctness of the averments made in the aforementioned complaints are ascertained and necessary action under relevant extant laws is taken,” the complaint to the police said.
