The spectre of fake voters has come out raised its ugly head in Bicholim.

Around 100 names were deleted from the election roll after objections were raised by locals.

Bicholim mamlatdar and EIRO Pravinjay Pandit said that the action was taken after objections by the locals that these were the names of migrant living for many eyes in the area on rent and casting votes.

When the hearing was conducted before the mamletdar it was noticed that some people had shifted to other places or were coming from their native places to cast their votes.
