Ghaziabad: The Ghaziabad district magistrate Friday sacked three Block Level Officers (BLOs) following a sting operation showing them accepting bribe to add names of fake voters in the electoral list.

District Magistrate S.V.S. Ranga Rao said the services of BLOs -- Hukum Singh, Ravinder Kasana and Harendra Singh -- of Loni area in charge of booth numbers 203, 346 and 371 were terminated after a television channel showed them claiming they would add names of voters in exchange for money.

A first information report (FIR) has also been lodged against them under sections 31 and 32 of the Representation of the People Act.
