Of the total, 105 were against Aam Aadmi Party, 88 against the Congress and 86 against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), said Vijay Dev, chief electoral officer of the Delhi Election Commission.

In the past one month, 70 unlicensed arms and 60 cartridges were seized by electoral officers deployed in all nine districts of the capital.

A total of 42,000 litres of liquor estimated at over Rs.1 crore was seized while cash amounting to Rs.1.6 crore was also seized from various constituencies when it was being distributed among voters.

In addition, 21 cases of paid news were monitored and notice issued to candidates.
