The Lok Sabha election was held on 18th April 2019 in Tamilnadu. In Madurai, the EVM machines are kept in the Madurai Medical College and three-tier security was provided there. Yesterday evening Tahsildar Sampoornam entered the premises and visited the counting center. She was alleged of taking some documents in the center and had taken photocopies of them. Along with the documents, the diaries of the presiding officers were also taken, say the sources.
Su Venkatesan, the Communist Party candidate and AMMK candidate David Annadurai protested against this along with other independent candidates. They have also demanded to showcase the public, the CCTV footage. The Madurai district collector stated that if anything suspicious had happened, they would take action. Now, the Tahsildar Sampoornam is said to have been suspended. The inquiry is still on!
