PESHAWAR, 21 April: Complying with the orders of the Judicial Commission probing election rigging, National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has submitted with the commission the thumbprints report of 30 constituencies of national and provincial assemblies.
The judicial commission had sought report on thumbprints from NADRA on 16th April. The same day the commission had directed the Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf to submit their evidences against poll rigging within seven days. Led by Chief Justice Nasirul Mulk, the three-member commission is comprised of Supreme Court judges.
The report states that all the thumbprints could not be verified besides the mechanism of verifying the thumb impression was not up to the mark. It prayed the commission to the Nadra report should be considered as the supportive documents for the evidences to be presented before it.
Earlier, NADRA after examining the votes of two constituencies had said that magnetic ink was not used to get the thumbprints of the voters in sheer violation of the election commission rules.
