Actor EVM plea in Supreme Court
Tamil actor Mansoor Ali Khan, who unsuccessfully contested the recent Lok Sabha polls, on Thursday moved the Supreme Court claiming that electronic voting machines can be tampered with and he be allowed to prove it.
Khan, who has acted mostly as a villain in Tamil films, had fought the election from the Dindigul constituency in Tamil Nadu on a Naam Tamilar Katchi ticket.
In his plea, Khan said that he be allowed to prove to the Election Commission, with the aid of experts, that EVMs are not tamper-proof.
He said the vulnerability of EVMs can be proved and the process supervised by former Supreme Court or high court judges.
