Cash For Votes: EC cancels Lok Sabha polls in Vellore, Kanimozhi's residence raided soon after

Updated : April 17, 2019 07:17 AM IST

The subsequent cancellation of polls in the constituency now makes Vellore the first-ever Lok Sabha seat to have elections cancelled on account of cash-for-votes.
This comes a little over a week after the Election Commission and Income Tax raids unearthed a sum of Rs 11 crore in a cement warehouse with alleged links to DMK leader and Vellore candidate D M Kathir Anand.
DMK sources told CNBC-TV18 that the party is expecting more raids at homes of DMK candidates, in constituencies where the party is expected to win the polls.
