EC files police complaint against man who claimed 2014 polls were rigged

EC files police complaint against man who claimed 2014 polls were rigged

The EC, however, clarified that the EVMs can not be tampered with, asserting that the machines are manufactured following "rigorous standard operating procedures".

The FPA, which along with the Indian Journalists Association (Europe), had organised the press conference in London, Tuesday tweeted that it "strongly dissociates" itself from Shuja's claims and that not one of them can be corroborated. It is worrying to know the claims made on the possibility of tampering EVMs. He said that he and his team were instructed by the ECIL to find out if EVMs could be hacked, and find out how to do this.

He launched an attack on the Congress questioning the presence of senior party leader and former Union law minister Kapil Sibal at the EVM Hackathon event organised in London on Monday. He was sent by the Congress, by Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Monday took a serious view of an event held in London, where it was claimed that EVMs could be tampered with, and threatened legal action.

"Few years ago, the Opposition had submitted a joint memorandum with the Election Commission of India demanding going back to the paper ballot system".

The particular modulator, as Shuja claimed, allowed the team to hack into the kernel of the device and manipulate results - a technique that was then allegedly taken by the BJP to manipulate the results of the 2014 and future elections. We did give them a possible solution which they were not able to use: "they did not participate in the challenge thrown by the (poll panel) to hack EVMs (in 2018)".

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has rejected the claims of an India cyber expert that the 2014 general election was rigged and termed them as rubbish. The BJP-led NDA came to power ousting the Congress-led UPA in 2014.

Shuja claimed: "The AAP had wanted us to hack the EVM to show the world that EVMs can be hacked". There was no immediate reaction from the BJP. "In Delhi Assembly elections, transmission initiated by the BJP IT was intercepted".

Shuja also claimed the NIA officer investigating Munde's death, Tanzil Ahmed, was planning to file an FIR noting he had been murdered but was himself killed.

He claimed they stopped the transmission during Delhi Assembly elections in 2015 and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) emerged as victor.

He claimed that several of his team members were shot dead during a meeting with a BJP leader there and that he too was shot and injured but managed to flee. He said he met a prominent Indian journalist and told him the whole story about the EVM rigging. "Its members are Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, SP president Akhilesh Yadav, BSP leader Satish Mishra, and Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi", she said.
