Mumbai Police launch probe against UPL for poll code violation


The Mumbai police have started investigation into the seizure of campaign material of the BJP from the premises of United Phosphorous Ltd (UPL) in Mumbai.

On April 9, a flying squad of the Election Commission (EC) had raided the premises of UPL at suburban Khar, where electronic cards for the BJP's poll campaign were being allegedly assembled. The returning officer had then issued a show-cause notice to the company.

Sanjay More, senior inspector at the Khar Police station said the Khar police had earlier registered a non-cognisable offence in the case. He said the police have now started investigation in this case after seeking proper permission from the local court under.

The Maharashtra Congress had demanded a CBI inquiry in the matter. (AIR NEWS)
