BJP’s Rao Inderjit Singh and Umed Singh of the Rashtriya Morcha Party (RMP) were served notices for violating the model code of conduct by the assistant returning officer (ARO) of Sohna on Sunday.

ARO Vivek Kalia said Rao Inderjit had taken permission to organise public meetings at only two places on Saturday, but had organised another two at different locations without permission. Flying squad-2 videographed the whole incident and submitted a report to the ARO. Singh has been asked to reply within two days. Umed Singh, too, has been asked to reply to the incident where unauthorised vehicles were found canvassing for him in Sohna.

In another incident, a car was impounded and seized after it was found carrying the campaigning material and pamphlets of the Aam Aadmi Party in Sohna without permission.

Meanwhile, as many as 150 boxes of liquor bottles were seized in the Sohna assembly segment on Saturday. Kalia said the liquor boxes were caught near Bhondsi during checking by the static surveillance team -3.

The liquor boxes were being ferried in a Mahendra Pick-up bearing. On inquiry, the driver said the boxes were being transported from Ashok Vihar L-1 to Harchandpur liquor vend, but could not produce the necessary permit. The liquor boxes were handed over to the excise department for enquiry.
