BJP President Amit Shah on Wednesday accused the Congress of using fake voter IDs to create fictitious voters and rig the Karnataka polls and urged the Election Commission (EC) to ensure free and fair polling in Rajarajeshwari Nagar and other parts of the state.

Earlier in the day, a Congress delegation, led by Anand Sharma, met the Election Commission and submitted a detailed memorandum about alleged malpractices by the BJP in Karnataka Assembly elections.

The state's Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Sanjiv Kumar late on Tuesday night said 9,746 voter cards had been seized from a flat in the constituency.
