Former Union Minister Jitin Prasada says his sister was unable to vote because her vote had already been cast by the time she reached the polling booth in the Dhaurhara Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh, according to news agency IANS.
"When my sister went to the polling booth, she found her name had been ticked and the presiding officer told her that vote had been cast. This is how fake voting is taking place," he said. He says he would take up the matter with the Election Commission.
The District Magistrate and Returning Officer Amrit Tripathi says her name was ticked due to the fault of a polling employee. He says Mr Prasada's sister will be allowed to vote if she came to the polling centre again.
