Electoral officers seize Rs 5.50 lakh

The Electoral officers' team led by Kundapur assistant commissioner have seized Rs 5.23 lakh in separate incidents.

Kundapur Assistant Commissioner T Bhoobalan told DH that he and his team members had seized Rs 3.6 lakh from a person connected to poultry farm and another Rs 70,000 from a financier at Sasthana in Brahmavar.

No valid documents

Both were unable to produce valid documents for possessing the amount. Hence the amount was deposited in the treasury. An inquiry will be held. However, there was no FIR lodged.

In Udupi, the team seized Rs 93,000 from a wine shop owner who said he had collected the amount at a wine shop.

However, he too did not provide any valid documents. He has affiliations with a political party.

The matter is under inquiry, said T Bhoobalan.
