Election Commission asks Delhi Police to investigate ‘misleading’ calls over electoral rolls
The Election Commission(EC) has asked Delhi Police to take necessary action against those making misleading phone calls to people about the city`s electoral rolls. 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.
