Sibling Of Newly Elected Mp Accused Of Phone Misuse During Lok Sabha Counting

The Mumbai Police has taken action against a relative of Shiv Sena‘s recently elected Member of Parliament, Ravindra Waikar. The case involves allegations of a mobile phone misuse during the Lok Sabha vote counting process on June 4th.

Specifically, Dinesh Gurav from the polling staff is under scrutiny for permitting the individual in question, Pandilkar, to have a mobile phone within the counting station located in Goregaon East.

The Mumbai North-West constituency was a battleground between factions of the Shiv Sena party, with Waikar backed by Eknath Shinde and opponent, Amol Kirtikar, supported by a different group.

An exceptionally close contest resulted in Waikar’s victory by a slim 48-vote margin. Following the outcome, a worker from the Bharat Jan Aadhaar Party lodged a formal complaint at the Vanrai police station.

Furthermore, the case has been registered under pertinent sections of the Representation of the People Act and specific sections of the Indian Penal Code, as confirmed by Senior Inspector Rajbhar.

Authorities are delving into the matter using CCTV footage from the counting center as part of their ongoing investigation.

In a reaction to the recent reports implicating phones being brought into counting centers, the returning officer of the Mumbai North-West Lok Sabha constituency, Vandana Suryavanshi stated that the EVM system does not require an OTP for operation.

A press release from the PTI indicated that they have initiated legal action against a newspaper for alleged defamation and dissemination of false information.
