The Election Commission on Friday postponed elections to the Rajrajeshwari Nagar assembly seat in Karnataka.
Polling in the constituency will now be held on May 28 now and counting will be on May 31.
The EC said that the decision to postpone RR Nagar assembly polls was taken because there was “definite inference” to suggest that efforts were made to induce voters.
The decision comes days after nearly 10,000 voter identity cards were recovered from a flat in the constituency, leading to a slugfest between the BJP and the Congress.
Voting for 222 seats of Karnataka Assembly will be held on Saturday, May 12. The counting of votes will take place on May 15.
