A Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader Sunil Khambe threw ink on the EVM in a polling booth situated in Thane Head Post Office, police said. A video of his act was widely circulated soon after on social media. While being bundled into the police van, Khambe said that he did this as EVMs were making a "mockery of democracy". "EVMs should be replaced with ballot papers. This is the demand of the people of the country. EVMs murdabad (down with EVMs)," he shouted out to reporters before being whisked away to a nearby police station.
