Kolkata: A day after over 1000 voter identity cards were recovered from a garbage bin in the city, the Left Front on Monday demanded a probe into the matter by the West Bengal chief electoral officer.

"The motive behind throwing the EPICs in a garbage vat should be unearthed and those involved behind this should be punished. We therefore urge you to inquire the matter and take necessary action," the Left Front said in a letter to the CEO.
