LAHORE: The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) on Saturday submitted its 125-page report on six polling stations of NA-125 in the election tribunal, stating that 280 out of 1,254 votes checked have been found to be bogus

The report revealed that fake votes were cast at polling stations, adding that 12 people at PS-98 reported to have cast their votes twice.

Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafiq of the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) had won the election in this constituency, while Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Hamid Ali Khan was the runner-up, who later challenged the decision on this seat in the election tribunals.

Six votes were cast by each individual at PS-6 of NA-125, a private news channel reported. The five polling stations that were checked by NADRA were PS-110, PS-107, PS-98, PS-6 and PS-5. Thumb impressions of several of the voters at these five polling stations could not be verified.

Commenting on the report, Hamid Khan said that the PTI had been reiterating from day one that the elections in 2013 were massively rigged, adding that the party's claim that Saad Rafiq stole the elections proved right. "We had never accepted this decision," he said.
