The same was confirmed by the CEO today through a letter to the media as seen below:

He informed that this matter was reported to the department late on Thursday evening, almost close to midnight. “It was only when the polling parties returned to the polling centre in Tura that the matter was reported to the State Election officials,” said Kharkongor.

He stated that the sector officers were able to detect a mismatch while checking and ascertaining the total number of votes in both the control units of the EVMs that were used for MP and Assembly by-polls.

“Immediately, on receipt of this information, the Returning Officer prepared a report and sent it to us on Friday morning and the same was forwarded to the ECI with the recommendation to conduct a re-polling in this particular polling station,” added Kharkongor.
