New Delhi:22/1:(odiannews):The Election Commission of India has filed a police complaint into US-based Indian “cyber-expert” Syed Shujas allegations at an event in London that EVMs used in India can be tampered with. The poll panel said it had learned, through media reports, that Shuja had claimed at the event that he was part of the EVM design team and can hack the EVMs used in Indian elections and sought the matter be “investigated properly”. Shuja, who also claimed to be a former employee of the Electronic Corporation of India Ltd, made a series of unsubstantiated allegations about the vulnerability of electronic voting machines (EVMs) used in India, including in the 2014 general election at the event. Appearing at the news conference through Skype, he said he was based in the United States, where he got political asylum after fleeing India due to threats to his life.
