In London recently a self-proclaimed hacker Syed Suja made shocking claims that the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in India could be tampered with and that the 2014 elections were rigged.

Following the claims the Electronic Corporation of India Ltd (ECIL) who is one of the manufacturers of the EVMs clarified that Syed Suja has never worked with the company. The Delhi State owned company clarified that after checking their records Syed was never associated with the EVM design team nor was Suja part of any of the development of the EVMs between the years 2009 to 2014.

The Election Commission has lodged a police compliant to the Delhi Police claiming that Suja was in violation of section 505(1)(b) and have requested that Suja be investigated promptly.
