Amritsar, January 14

Flying squads of the District Election Office seized cycles stuffed in six trucks, suspected to be distributed among voters in violation of the Model Code of Conduct, here on Friday.

Hardeep Singh, Returning Officer from the South assembly seat, said cycles were seized from the South constituency and seemed to have been brought there to be distributed among needy people. He informed that a complaint was received on the phone that a political person had brought six trucks full of cycles which were parked outside a marriage palace.

Anshuman Sharma, Duty Magistrate, who was leading the flying squad, reached the spot and after a probe found the material suspicious.

Joginder Singh, president of an NGO, said these cycles belonged to his NGO, which did not have association with any political party. He said before enforcing the Model Code of Conduct they had decided to hold a three-day camp from January 15. However, finding the matter suspicious it has been forwarded to the police. —
