The BJP alleged that as many as 18 people who were involved in printing the fake voter ID were arrested. The BJP has alleged that Youth Congress National Secretary Ibrahim Khaleelulla was running the racket from room no. 507 of 3rd floor of Prabhat Complex in Chikpet area. The BJP also sought that based on this, the Congress should be disqualified from contesting the elections and Arshad be banned from contesting elections till the investigation is complete.

Meanwhile, Rizwan Arshad has denied all the charges and said that ‘sensing defeat’ the BJP has ‘launched an extraordinary attack’ on him as they don’t want an ordinary boy to succeed. The BBMP Commissioner M Manjunath Prasad has said that while prima facie there is no foul play involved, further investigation is currently on in this regard.
